"The people of 00 were frightened. Even the children were frightened. Darzek read mute terror in every gesture, in every hesitant purchase, in every pale face. The tension was exacerbated by the unnatural silence of the place ... The people even walked silently, their wooden-soled shoes somehow negotiating the cobble-stones without clomping. Females and vendors haggles with soundless gestures. Itinerant musicians, such as would have been a prominent feature of a fair on almost any other world, were replaced by shabby performers shaping whirling disks of color into exotic patterns for small groups that watched intently but did not applaud. Kamm, the Silent Planet. For the first time, that concept oppressed Darzek. Silence seemed to hang about him heavily as he watched the triangular coins fall noiselessly into vendors' padded trays, watched insect-like creatures buzzing in furious silence over a soggy pile of something that looked like sea mollusks. He repressed an urge to cry out; he knew the sound would drop from his lips unheard"--Page 2 of cover

"Art critics are notoriously inhuman--and on Donov may of them were physically inhuman as well. Donov was a planet devoted to the arts. People came from all over the galaxy to attend its galleries and meet its artists. And many of the the best artists were not human either. But when a rising tide of anti-alien pogroms and riots began zeroing in on Donov from outer space, it became clear that there was a plot afoot that had nothing to do with art criticism. It had to do with planetary genocide"--Page 4 of cover

The IPR Bureau (whose motto is "Democracy imposed from without is the severest form of tyranny") works to bring newly discovered planets up to the point where they have a planetary democratic government and then induct them into the galactic federation. Unfortunately, the planet Furnil offers problems. The continent of Kurr has a well-entrenched monarchy, and the citizens seem little inclined to change. In fact, they immerse themselves in art rather than politics...and have been doing so for more than 400 years! So what's a poor IPR agent to do...? Classic science fiction!
