* Foreshadowing: it is mentioned that the Socialist Party of Great Britain was formed in the early 20th century with a mere hundred members, and had nearly a thousand by the 70s. This is mockingly extrapolated to suggest they'll have a parliamentary seat by 2015 and global domination by the 24th century. ''The Stone Canal'' shows that they got their seat, and ''The Cassini Division'' shows that by the 24 centry the communist Union controls more or less the whole Solar System.

The ''Fall Revolution'' series is a "Future History" tetralogy by Scottish Science Fiction writer Creator/KenMacLeod. The series covers a time span of about 400 years, starting with the university days in Glasgow of three key recurring characters through two global political upheavals, nuclear war, the singularity and planetary colonisation. There's a strong political theme of socialism and libertarian anarchism. Both the series as a whole and the individual books exhibit AnachronicOrder.

The final book, ''The Sky Road'' is set on Earth, before the events of either ''The Stone Canal'' or ''The Cassini Division'', and is largely set in a peaceful and liberal new civilisation that formed from the Green (ecoterrorist) and Red (communist) "barbarians" after a final nuclear war on Earth destroys all electronics via EMP and everything in orbit via Kessler syndrome. It looks at the history of Myra Godwin from her student days and her actions following the Fall Revolution which ultimately end civilisation and lead to her being granted the title of Deliverer.

* WorldWarIII: The Germans, finally fed up with terrorism, refugees and fallout (whose origin is never mentioned...) invade Poland. Neither the Polish nor the Germans have any nuclear weapons, but when Israel decides to weigh in against the Germans everything goes very bad, very quickly. The US, in charge of the UN, enforces nuclear disarmament with orbital battlesats and forms an oppressive global regime that is ultimately ended by the Fall Revolution.

The second book, ''The Stone Canal'' begins on New Mars, a colony planned by Posthumans but populated by a ragtag band of the more conventional type when the Posthuman civilisations crashed. It follows the life and times of Jonathon Wilde (who had a brief role in The Star Fraction) from his university days through his rise as a political power in the anarchist free port of Norlonto, his role in the third world war and eventual death and first resurrection as a personality upload and second resurrection as a re-embodied human. The third book, ''The Cassini Division'' takes place after the events of The Stone Canal following the return of Jay-Dub through the wormhole, and is set in a prosperous and thriving communist utopia that has spread across the solar system but still has to deal with the lingering threat of the fallen Posthumans and their remains in Jupiter.

* WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture: Averted. Mutual Protection's Slave Camps are often populated with white collar and political prisoners, who get to WorkOffTheDebt by doing what they do best. Physical labour is seen as "break time" by both the inmates and their guards.

* ReplacementGoldfish: David Reid never really got over his rejection by Annette. Happily, the Posthumans who had hoped to found a colony on New Mars had obtained a sample of her DNA, so he could have a perfect replica of her body made but with a suitably subserviant SexBot AI installed instead of Annette's original intelligence.

Added DiffLines:
* RoboticSpouse: Dee [[spoiler: gets back with David Reid after she obtains her freedom and sentience, but as a partner, not a sex slave]].
