Science Fiction and Empire

£45.00

Product description

Condition: used very good ++, light shelf wear to dj otherwise as new.

From its beginnings, science fiction has experimented with imperialistic scenarios of alien invasion, extraterrestrial exploitation, xenophobia, and colonial conquest. In Science Fiction and Empire, Patricia Kerslake brings contemporary thinking about post-colonialism and imperialism to bear on a variety of classic sci-fi novels and films, including The War of the Worlds, Stanislaw Lem's Solaris, and Star Wars. The first book to identify the consequences of empire in science fiction, Kerslake's study is a compelling investigation of the political ramifications of how we imagine our future. Includes full bibliography, notes and full index.

'Science Fiction and Empire is thought-provoking and insightful, . . . the kind of large-scale post-colonial work that science fiction has needed for quite some time' (Science Fiction Studies)
