The story of a confrontation between a human overlord and alien servants, with an ironic twist at the end. Like most of Piper's best work, Uller Uprising is modeled after an actual event in human history; in this case the Sepoy Mutiny -- though not a mere retelling of the Indian Mutiny, but rather an analysis of an historical event applied to a similar situation in the far future.

The novel is fun... but it definitely dates itself, not just in the technology (though set hundreds of years in the future, people are still using slide rules) but also in some of the ideas. Basically, the book reads as a justification for colonialism. Its very one sided in the sense that it ignores the alien perspective all together (even though the aliens are a very important part of the book). Still it is a fun read.
