"Wildermuth's examination of the significance of gender in American security state culture is both a searching analysis of science fiction television in its most formative decade and a compendium of feminist culture critique. His book will be a major inflection point for further debate on issues of philosophical and political importance." - Steven M. Sanders, Bridgewater State University, USA and editor of The Philosophy of Science Fiction Film "Television can both reflect and shape popular perceptions of social and political movements. In his discussion of the gendered logic of the security state, Mark E. Wildermuth advances a fascinating thesis which is strongly bolstered by his savvy and literate analysis of science fiction television. Well-chosen examples from a wide range of programs make Wildermuth's case plausible, and of interest to scholars of both science fiction and post-war political thought." - Aeon J. Skoble, author of Deleting the State and coeditor of The Philosophy of TV Noir
