From the Publisher

Set in the same universe as The Parafaith War (but two centuries later, and intended to be read independently), The Ethos Factor is the story of Commander Van C. Albert of the Republic Space Force of Taran, a brave and resourceful officer who once defeated a larger enemy ship but indirectly caused the loss of a civilian liner in the process. Cleared by the board of inquiry, but an embarrassment to the high command, he retains his commission but is given only dead-end assignments. For a time, he must watch helplessly as cold war among economic, religious and political rivals evolves toward interstellar open warfare.

Assigned as a military attaché at the Taran embassy on Scandya, Van is seriously wounded foiling an assassination. Decorated, promoted and summarily retired while still in a coma, he wakes to find himself honorably but intolerably unemployed. Then the harmless sounding Integrated Information Systems foundation of the Eco-Tech Coalition recruits him to fly a starship, Van finds he now has a powerful new vantage point not just for observation, but for action. The IIS has interests everywhere and Van is not just a pilot, but their point man in a conflict that will shake the worlds.

Modesitt uses a distinctive blend of space battles, political and economic intrigue, and issues of race and religion to address deep questions of good and evil, ethics and self-interest. Van Albert makes his decisions; it is for you to decide if he is a hero.

Modesitt uses a distinctive blend of space battles, political and economic intrigue, and issues of race and religion to address deep questions of good and evil, ethics and self-interest. Van Albert makes his decisions; it is for you to decide if he is a hero. et in the same universe as The Parafaith War (but two centuries later, and intended to be readable independently), The Ethos Factor is the story of Com-mander Van C. Albert of the Republic Space Force of Taran. This brave and resourceful officer once indirectly caused the loss of a civilian liner while defeating a larger enemy ship. Cleared by the board of inquiry, he was allowed to continue his career, but is not popular with the high command. After he is seriously injured while heroically preventing an assassination, his superiors leap at the chance to promote and retire him with honors while he is still unconscious. After a long recovery, Van finds that there are few jobs for ship captains of his experience and decides to take a chance on a somewhat mysterious non-aligned foundation. Its bland name-Integrated Information Systems-turns out to disguise a surprisingly powerful force in the inhabited galaxy-perhaps the only one that anticipates the coming interstellar war. As Van's responsiblities grow, the choices he faces are profound. The collapse of worlds, when it comes, is sudden and violent.
