The Long Way Home - Poul Anderson

A group of spacemen testing a hyperdrive return from their trip and realise all has not gone well, due to the stars not being in the right place. i.e. they are in the future.

They confirm this when they find the Earth, with its advances, lost colonies, Centaurian opponents, Technon computer brain control, guilds and others.

There is a caste system with slaves, and that is not all that is rotten in the Solar System of Sol, as these newly arrived outsiders begin to discover.
