Comments & Further Information

This edition was first published in 1997 – this is a later undated printing of the 1997 edition (20th impression). The book is in VERY FINE condition and appears unread. Very faint crease to top left-hand corner of rear cover. The first of Isaac Asimov’s robot novels. “Detective Elijah Baley investigates the murder of an offworlder in Spacetown. In the opinion of the Spacers, the murder is tied up with recent attempts to sabotage the Spacer-sponsored project of converting Earth to an integrated human/robot society on the model of the Outer Worlds. To search for the killer in the city’s vast caves of steel, Elijah is assigned a space partner named R Daneel. That’s Robot Daneel. And notwithstanding the celebrated Three Laws of Robotics which should make such a murder impossible, R. Daneel is soon the prime suspect.THE THREE LAWS OF ROBOTICS : 1. A robot may not injure a human being, or through inaction allow a human being to come to harm
2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
