About this book

A socio-cultural analysis of the relationship between modernism and science fiction, from the 1870s to the 1970s, with examples drawn from literature and other media in Britain, Europe and the Americas. The book challenges how high and low culture has been mapped in the twentieth century.

About the authors

Reviews

“March-Russell in four chapters covers a century of science fiction, twice the number of years identified as Modernist. … it certainly makes a strong case for at least some excerpts to make their way into class discussion.” (Michelle K. Yost, SFRA Review, Issue 315, 2015)
