"The essays treat the intersection of politics and fiction, but what emerges as the abiding interest among almost all of the contributors, whether scholars of political science or of literature, was the variousness of science fiction writers' depictions of utopian worlds and what those utopian creations say about contemporary life and politics."—College Literature
"Political Science Fiction is a brave attempt to look at a variety of science fiction texts from a strictly political viewpoint. . . Discussion of such political issues as feminism, the Cold War, postmodernism, and models of government give a variety to appeal to all science fiction scholars."—Kritikon Litterarum
