Also known as "Shin Sekai Yori"
For those of you who haven't seen this show...you should, it's pretty good.
ANN link to the show
And for those of you who are watching this and want to read the original material, but can't understand Japanese (like me )...there is some interest by Vertical Inc. to translate and publish the book (~ 1000 pages all up or so), however they aren't willing to commit to it due to the cost and time involved. On the plus side... if they get enough people willing to pre-order it or something (so that they break even with cost), they'll do it.
