An omnibus edition containing all three volumes of the Hostile Takeover Trilogy includes Profiteer, Partisan, and Revolutionary, in which the Terran Executive Command threatens a bloody takeover of Bakunin, forcing Dominic Magnus and his companions to wage a desperate battle to save their world, unaware of a powerful ally at the very heart of the Confederacy of Planets.

In the 24th century, humans have built a star-spanning Confederacy that encompasses 83 worlds-plus one. The 84th planet is Bakunin, where power belongs to whoever can seize it. With no taxes, no antitrust laws, and no governing body, it's the perfect home base for mega-corporations and criminals.

It is the middle of the 24th Century, after a long history of bloodshed lorded over by a dictatorial Terra, the many planets of humankind have knitted together a precariously balanced peace, a peace that has lasted for a century despite the warren of conflicting powers and interests that make up the Confederacy.

Also, for a century, a planet has nestled in the heart of the Confederacy outside that precarious balance. The planet is named Bakunin, a place founded by anarchistic idealists which has evolved/degenerated into a Libertarian nightmare/paradise.

Bakunin becomes the center of a web of intrigue that, once it explodes, threatens to destroy both it and the Confederacy.
