Product description

Review

""Dark Horizons is a stimulating and imaginative set of essays which demonstrate the transgressive and polyvalent nature of contemporary science-fiction dystopias. They precipitate us into the twenty-first century with a sense of foreboding - but also of hope."
-Barbara Goodwin, Professor of Politics, University of East Anglia, Norwich
""Dark Horizons is a timely and highly significant book bound to make readers reflect critically on what has happened to the utopian hope of the 1960s. A collection of essays on Anglo-American science fiction and film and the dystopian imagination superbly edited by Raffaella Baccolini and Tom Moylan, this volume sheds critical light on the propensity of many writers, filmmakers, and critics to depict dystopian views of the world during the dark times of the 1980s, 1990s, and the onset of the twenty-first century. Most of the essayists are leading scholars of utopian studies, and they cover a range of topics and works with perspicacity while carefully delineating notions of the utopian, eutopian, and dystopian. Altogether the essays constitute the first major attempt to come to terms with contemporary dystopian literature and film and to suggest alternative and critical readings that paradoxically reveal the hope of pessimism and skepticism."
-Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota
""Dark Horizons is a valuable resource in utopian and sf studies."
-Graham J. Murphy, "Science Fiction Studies, 2005
