The Dosadi Experiment by Frank Herbert:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
An exceptional novel; this book introduces many races and characters. Dosadi is an experimental planet, where individuals from different species are forced into a pressure-cooker environment that either kills them or radically expands their capacities (it may remind you of Manhattan - it's even surrounded by a poison river). Will the people of Dosadi be loosed upon the rest of the complacent universe? Select
