Histories of the Future: Studies in Fact, Fantasy and Science Fiction

Histories of the Future: Studies in Fact, Fantasy and Science Fiction By Alan Sandison, Robert Dingley
English | PDF | 2000 | 219 Pages | ISBN : 0333776410 | 11 MB

This collection of interdisciplinary essays examines some of the ways in which writers, artists, film-makers, strategists and political thinkers have imagined the future over the last two centuries. Although a number of contributions discuss 'mainstream' science fiction, the collection's emphasis is not on any single genre, but rather on the ways in which different histories - technological, cultural, military, ideological - generate and inform different modes of speculation about things to come.
