Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For more than a half century, Ursula K. Le Guin's visionary science fiction has expanded boundaries and ambitions of the genre, bringing new literary aspiration to bold explorations of sexuality and gender, race and power, and the meaning of freedom. This volume, the first in a deluxe two-volume edition of her brilliant Hainish novels and stories, gathers five books, including her masterworks The Left Hand of Darkness (1969) and The Dispossessed (1974), and four stories, and features a new introduction by the author.
