Beings from a distant planet impact the political, economic, and spiritual life of both Britain and the world in this tale that uses a touch of science fiction to explore human potential. Dealing with a suffering economy and rising inflation, the prime minister is a year into office and faces nothing but frustration. Then, visitors with impressive technological skills and an astonishingly tranquil presence arrive claiming to be from a distant world. This perceptive narrative lifts current political debate out of its rut when these aliens explain that, thanks in part to the wise Teachers of Earth, they have established a just society in which they live in peace and happiness. With the use of sharp dialogue and a message carefully wrapped in a gripping story, this exquisite yarn reintroduces ideas that inspired reformers worldwide at the beginning of the 20th century.
