Part II deals with the launching of the Okie cities with their computerized "City Fathers." Part III covers the period leading up to the settlement of New Earth by the Okie city New York. Part IV encompasses nothing less than the destruction of the old and creation of a new universe." - Mowshowitz, p. 302. Anatomy of Wonder ((2004) II-137.
