From Library Journal:

A network known as the Assembly unites the minds of the people of Earth. A spaceship arrives with four Travelers who claim to be human descendants, and Judge Stefan Acari befriends one of the Travelers. Soon he must decide if the visitors are really friends or disease carriers sent to infect and exterminate humanity. Through strong characterization, Freireich (Becoming Human, ROC: NAL 1995) depicts the struggle between xenophobia and isolationism. Recommended for sf collections.
