In terms of history, we humans mostly had hereditary rulers. Some of her more unusual stories had different political systems. It's been too long since I read them though so I can't name any. I read a bunch of her short stories recently that were much more anthropologically focused and not all her societies had kings or queens, some of them didn't have men or women.
Yeah,that's true. Her The Left hand Of Darkness is my all time favorite and I wish she had followed up on that,but nope. Grass was my other favorite. These are really the only two, of all her books I read, that stick out in my mind . They actually made an impact over the years for me and I recommend them to others as need be. The rest were just so so for me.
A few I could not slog through and gave up on. I can't remember which those were now.
One of her books was made into an hour long movie and aired on PBS. I can't remember what that was either.
The Lathe of Heaven?
