From release/information:

Book Description: Verne's first cautionary tale about the dangers of science -- first modern and corrected English translation.

It is the story of two scientists who unexpectedly inherit 500-million-fracs from an Indian rajah. The French scientist, Dr. Francois Sarrasin, builds a city called France-Ville and is determined that it will be a germ-free city focused on hygiene and health. The German scientist, Herr Schultze, builds a city of weapons, the City of Steel. Schultze wants to conquer the world and subjugate France-Ville under the Aryans. The cities compete, and civility gives way to might in this tale of progress gone awry.
