Hostile Takeover is a science fiction trilogy (actually one long novel in three parts) written by S. Andrew Swann and published by DAW Books where the main setting is the Anarcho-capitalist planet of Bakunin. It consists of three books titled Profiteer, Partisan and Revolutionary, which were published between 1995 and 1996 and re-released by DAW in a single volume in 2004.
The series is set in the 24th Century, in the same universe as Swann's Moreau series. In this future, the various races of earth—human, "moreau", and "frank" (genetically engineered human, short for "Frankenstein")—have settled a number of worlds and established a loose confederacy of powers. The extraterrestrials that manipulated Earth's politics and economy in the Moreau series have been quarantined, but their AI machines (which may still be manipulating human society) are now used by humans.
