'Jessica Langer's crisp study performs timely and acute analyses of issues of racial identity, problems of diaspora and locality, the clash of indigenous and Western forms of knowledge, and the play of historical continuity and discontinuity at the conjuncture of science fiction, colonialism, and postcolonial studies. It should become a central reference in this growing field.' – Professor John Rieder, Department of English, UH Mānoa, USA
Grounded in the latest scholarship and cultural production, this book explores intersections and interactions between the science fiction and the theory and practice of postcolonialism
