  • theory – detailed accounts of major theoretical approaches including feminism, Marxism, psychoanalysis, cultural studies, postcolonialism, posthumanism and utopian studies
  • issues and challenges – anticipates future directions for study in areas as diverse as science studies, music, design, environmentalism, ethics and alterity
  • subgenres – a prismatic view of the genre, tracing themes and developments within specific subgenres.

Bringing into dialogue the many perspectives on the genre The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction is essential reading for anyone interested in the history and the future of science fiction and the way it is taught and studied.

Review:

‘Well designed for reference, for serendipitous browsing, or for systematic study, The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction will be welcomed by novice and veteran scholars alike.’– Carl Freedman, Louisiana State University, USA

'This title should serve as a base for future updates that will continue to enrich knowledge and appreciation of science fiction...Highly recommended.'  Choice

'The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction will, one day soon, become an indispensable guide to sf's history, breadth, and depth for the genre's scholars, authors, and aficionados... The Routledge Companion to Science Fiction to a crucial addition to sf scholarship.  The book most directly appeals to the genre's academic surveyors, but non-scholars will find it fascinating, intelligent, and debatable information in its pages.  This publication's comprehensive, incisive, and useful entries make me wish the Companion a long and prosperous (shelf) life.' Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. This overview of the history and study of science fiction outlines major writers, movements and texts in the genre, established critical approaches and areas for future study. The History section is divided by mode -- prose fiction, film, television, comics, material culture -- and organised chronologically. The Theory section examines the genre through the well-established perspectives and methodologies of sf scholarship. Issues and Challenges anticipates future directions for study in areas as diverse as science studies, music, design, environmentalism, ethics and alterity; and Sub-genres focuses on different kinds of sf, each with its own distinct history and thematic concerns. The book most directly appeals to the genre's academic surveyors, but non-scholars will find fascinating, intelligent and debatable information in its pages. JOURNAL OF THE FANTASTIC IN THE ARTS.
