They live roughly three millennia in Earth’s future, a time when hyperspace travel has been discovered, and a few worlds relatively close to Earth have been colonized—fifty planets known as the “Spacer worlds”. The Spacer worlds are rich, have low population density average population of one hundred million eachand use robot labor heavily. Meanwhile, Earth is overpopulated with a total population of eight billion, and strict rules against robots have been passed.
The “caves of steel” are vast city complexes covered by huge metal domes, capable of supporting tens of millions.
In The Caves of Steel and its sequels the first of which is The Naked SunAsimov paints a grim situation of an Earth dealing with an extremely large population, and of luxury-seeking Spacers who limit birth to permit great wealth and privacy.
Asimov, who described himself as a claustrophile, mentioned that a reader asked him how he could have imagined such an existence with no sunlight, and related that it had not struck him until then that living perpetually indoors might be construed as unpleasant.

Atwood gives Jezebel a rough ride. Here’s what Asimov has to say: The Jezebel of the Bible was a faithful wife and a good one according to her lights. She had no lovers that we know of.

One of the captains of his army, Jehu, rebelled against him and assassinated him. Jehu then rode to Jezreel where the old queen-mother, Jezebel, was residing. Jezebel heard of his coming and knew that he could only mean to kill him.
In her pride and courage, she painted her face and dressed herself in her best clothes so that she could meet him as a haughty and defiant queen.
He had her thrown from the window of her palace and killed, but she made a good end, according to my lights. I’d forgotten how passionate he was about defending her. One of the many bovefas things about Asimov was that he was quite a feminist, but somehow without ever acquiring that label. The Susan Calvin stories are an even clearer example.

Asimov had clearly read the Bible, he had several informed sections about the Jezebel story. The murder mystery is kind of secondary to Asimov path finding for later writers like Philip K. Dick and Robert Silverberg and really a host of other writers Donald: Not much action, this is a lot of Asimov describing his futuristic world. And Asimov was a winner with this archetypal sci-fi gem.

The story itself is a murder mystery involving a murdered Spacer. Daneel Olivaw to solve the crime. The real charm of the story is the description of life on Earth, the contrast between that life and that of the Spacers and the Earthmen and the explorations of the various prejudices among the groups.
