Yet another great book from Jack Vance, The Dragon Masters won him the Hugo, which says it all really. I could describe the plot, but it actually doesn't sound as good as the book turns out to be. The idea is based on genetic engineering and breeding, and revolves around a first local and then interplanetary war, see that sounds cliched but this book is much more complex and thats just the simplest way to describe it. If you like Jack Vance you will like this book. My only complaint is that I finished it in about a day, it was quite short! There is a version of this book which also includes The Last Caste, another great book which increases the reading time, try and get that if you can.
