Summary
"This book addresses the origins, development and fate of extraterrestrial intelligent life in the universe. The author presents a wide-ranging analysis of the type of knowledge that can be inferred about extraterrestrial intelligent societies from our own biological, cultural and scientific evolution, and from the likely future of mankind. Providing extensive background information from astronomy, geology, chemistry and biology, the book will appeal to both the scientist and the general reader."--BOOK JACKET
