Critical Essay by Best Sellers

["Re-Birth"] is an enthralling science-fiction story…. It may easily be designated a philosophical commentary on the nature of man surviving the most cataclysmic of events. Though it is never explicitly stated, this is the story of the various remnants of mankind that have survived a world-wide atomic catastrophe. There is wry humor implicit in the efforts of one major remnant to emulate the "old People". The survival of the ancient prejudices and misguided religious ideals that bedevil mankind today is a testimony to man's perverse ignorance and smugness. But there is a prophetic hope in the life-style of still another remnant. This is, indeed, an impressive satirical commentary on man and his pitiable pretensions.

"'Re-Birth'," in Best Sellers (copyright 1970, by the University of Scranton), Vol. 29, No. 24, March 15, 1970, p. 478.
