Alternate History The Man in the High Castle (1962)

The United States lost a war some two decades ago and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

Book details

It's 1962 in America. Slavery is once again legal—the few Jews who have survived hide under aliases. The I Ching is as common in San Francisco as the Yellow Pages. All because the United States lost a war twenty years ago and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel established Philip K. Dick as a science fiction innovator while breaking down the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. Dick paints a haunting picture of history as a nightmare from which it may be possible to awaken.
