Annotation

Starts looking back from 3091 which is a pollution free, safe, disease-free London, where ugly old buildings like the Houses of Parliament have been torn down and replaced by elegant homes. Advanced technology in the homes of the wealthy, but with the comment from the undefined future that it is now in all homes. This was brought about by selecting people to die depending on the food available after the ten-year census, but the story shows the problems, including violations of randomness. The focus is on a young woman from a wealthy family who was one of those selected. Very little social change.
