A military sci-fi novel, Starship Troopers follows a young Filipino soldier, Juan "Johnnie" Rico, as he progresses in his career from recruit to non-commissioned officer during an intergalactic war. "Through Rico's eyes, Heinlein examines moral and philosophical aspects of suffrage, civic virtue, the necessities of war and capital punishment, and the nature of juvenile delinquency. The novel won the Hugo Award in 1960, and it helped to create a new genre of literature now known as military science fiction. It has also been adapted into several films and games, notably the 1997 film by Paul Verhoeven" (McGill). Fine in Very Good + dust jacket. (Item #4935)
