"Demonstrating stylistic elegance, meticulous research, and a comprehensive approach, [this work] is the best scholarly study to date that offers a highly innovative and impressively wide- ranging exploration of important questions given our present time, place and space and how Spanish science fiction writers and filmmakers engage their readers in them..." - Prof. Doreen O'Connor-Gomez Whittier College"From the Publisher:
This book is a comprehensive study on the science fiction genre in Spain that reveals key elements of Spanish culture. It analyzes both literature and cinema in an interdisciplinary context and includes a critical and philosophical perspective in order to explore a diversity of cultural topics of contemporary relevance. Spanish science fiction writers and filmmakers have never been generally recognized for their contributions to Spanish literature and cinema - in today's academic landscape Spanish science fiction remains outside the parameters of the established canons in these fields. This is significant considering the topics of great cultural relevance that are being presented through the science fiction of Spain today. In addition to offering works of uniquely Spanish perspective and experience, these authors and filmmakers are exploring the more universal questions of humanity including such issues as the meaning of being human. The extent and limits of human rationality and whether humans are truly rational beings, the nature and causes of the wars being commanded by men today, the manner in which conflicts arising from nationalism, machismo, feminism, racism, and religion are manifested in society, the relationship between technology and humanity, and the role, nature, and consequences of History and its reinterpretation.
