Third in the sf trilogy, following BELOVED SON (1978) and VANEGLORY (1981).

''Australian writer and sf critic. His first sf novel was Beloved Son (1978 UK), in which an interstellar expedition returns to Earth in AD2032 to find a diminished post-holocaust population with very few old people, and a radically changed and somewhat merciless culture; the scenario is complicated by developments in genetic engineering. The book is perhaps ponderous, but was well received for its careful exploration of some plausible moral problems of the near future. The other novels in this Ethical Culture series -- different protagonists but a common background -- are Vaneglory (1981 UK) and Yesterday's Men (1983 UK). They are serious and interesting, but the characteristic solemnity of their presentation has alienated some'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
