Summary

''College-level collections strong in science fiction holdings will welcome the scholarly survey ALTERNATE AMERICAS: SCIENCE FICTION FILM AND AMERICAN CULTURE. Its professor author M. Keith Booker has selected some fifteen of the most successful, innovative sci fi films of all time and here considers their cultural, technical and cinematic effects. Any genre fan will immediately recognize and acknowledge these selections as true 'greats', from Forbidden Planet and 2001 to Alien, E.T., Blade Runner and Matrix. That they not only reflected future fantasy but the concerns and culture of their times makes for a penetrating analysis which surveys plots and underlying meanings.- California Bookwatch ''
