I had forgotten about that one. I recall really enjoying it. The idea of the alien society collapsing over and over due to over population. As a teenager my favorites were:

The Stars Are Ours by Andre Norton

Night of Masks by Andre Norton

The Time Traders by Andre Norton

Citizen of the Galaxy
by Heinlein


As and adult now I would say:

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

The Foundation Series
by Isaac Asimov

Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke


There is probably a lot of more recent stuff, over the last three decades, that I am just not aware of that I might like. Science Fiction hasn't been a priority for years.
