"The real value of this cautionary novel lies in its predictive role--it nicely anticipates major political and even spiritual dilemmas of the century just ahead, our century."--D. M. Hassler, Extrapolation
Wave is a key early text dealing with racism, western prejudice and
national identity, and would be any modern scholar's selection as the
first title to bring back into currency."--Van Ikin, University
of Western Australia
