Synopsis

Star Wars begins with its famous title sequence, setting the story in the ancient past of a remote galaxy. Yet the phenomenal success of the film, the franchise and its ""expanded universe"" is based upon its reflection of historical and cultural milieus here on modern-day Earth. This collection of new essays examine various ways in which the George Lucas saga touches upon contemporary social and political issues. Topics include the impact of the film's score on musical genres, feminism and NASA, geographic space and race, gender identity construction, Cold War narratives in radio and national mythology, and fan interpretations of authorship and authenticity.
