Comments & Further Information

First UK edition which comes complete with the publisher’s press release. Minor bump to base of book spine. Unpriced dustjacket. “This book is about the human desire to experiment with empire. In the past it was done with real soldiers and expeditions and slaves and trade and misery and force. In the future it will be done with generation ships and off-world pioneers, robots and invasion, electronic sheep and people who just don’t want to be pushed around any more. Examining classic SF texts, this book offers an insight into the darkest power abuses of mankind; where the oppression, silencing and marginalisation of those who are not-us continues and flourishes.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
