In the late 20th century, giant spaceships station themselves over Earth's great cities, and an alien spokesperson named Karellen begins to deal with the UN Secretary General about dismantling the various countries' aggressive weaponry. Peace comes uneasily to the planet and a century passes before the visiting Overlords' role becomes clear. A human being stows away on an Overlord supply vessel to find out where they come from, while a new generation of ostensibly human children begins to display wholly new mental capabilities and the human race as it has known itself learns that it is on the way out. Clarke's classic 1953 novel of "punctuated evolution" midwived by more powerful forces that are still subservient to a greater power is a bit dated, but still rings very true.
