Read full description of the books:
When a mysterious alien spacecraft approaches Earth and demands to speak with the President of the United States, then destroys a large Pacific island to demonstrate its strength and underscore its seriousness, you would expect the President to talk.
Problem is, in the late twenty-first century, there is no President - not even a United States. In fact, in this world of the future, China rules the Americas; and to most people, USA and USSR are just quaint abbreviations in the historical dictionaries.
Then the aliens prove unreasonable about accepting substitutes...so one Anglo rice-cultivator from the Heavenly Grain Collective Farm - near Biloxi, Mississippi - is forced to begin an adventure that will take him from peasant to President, from Pettyman to Spaceman.
