I have also read two other novels by : "Solitude" and "The word for >>world<< is >>forest<<".

Both are part of Hainsh cycle, and both could be interpreted commentaries on the real world events.


The word for "world" is "forest" (minor-ish) spoilers 

Apparently it was written as a protest against US militarization and the Vietnam war.

It tells the story of Terran colonists on a planet that has native humanoid life-forms, that are numerous, but strangely pacifistic.

Natives considered dream and waking world to be both real. At one time one of them dreamed new thing that could break their enslavement.
