a return of something after a period of absence — especially something bad
  • We are seeing a recrudescence of these contentions by scientists, even to the recent suggestion that men with lower IQs (by white-oriented tests) be paid to have vasectomies—one thousand dollars for each point lower than 100, so that a man with an IQ of 90 would get ten thousand dollars to have himself sterilized.
