Charles Cantrell has a problem. He's the administrator of a tiny outpost on the asteroid Rosinante; dealing with problems is his job. But when thousands of political "undesirables" are shipped to his habitat, an engineering project becomes a colony...one with pressures building up to a boiling point. And when Earth's government wants some of those prisoners back, well... that's a problem.

From official release/information:

Product Description: THE CAMPBELL AWARD WINNING NOVEL. The reluctant revolutionary! Charles Cantrell thought he had enough headaches as project manager of a crew building a habitat on the asteroid, Rosinante. Then some dunderheaded politician back on Earth shipped several thousand perfectly innocent political prisoners to Rosinante to escape embarrassment. Suddenly, Charles found the habitat transformed from an engineering project to a colony - and he was in charge! Every one of the new arrivals had an axe to grind, and Charles seemed to be the whetstone they liked to grind their blades on. Then Earth decided it wanted several of the prisoners back, and Charles refused to surrender them. Now Earth's space navy is on its way to seize control of the asteroid. To preserve his own freedom, and that of everyone now on Rosinante, Charles is forced to turn revolutionary. But how can one small group stranded on a tiny worldlet billions of miles from anywhere possibly resist the military might of Terra?
