The Star Trek franchise reflects, conveys, and comments upon the key philosophical tensions of the modern era: pragmatism vs. justice; universalism vs. traditionalism; empire vs. consensual polity; environmentalism vs. modernity. George A. Gonzalez details the manner in which these tensions and controversies are manifested in Star Trek across its iterations, and in so doing argues that Star Trek offers an indispensable intellectual and analytical contribution to our understanding of the politics of the modern era.

About the Author:

George A. Gonzalez is Professor of Political Science at the University of Miami, USA.  His area of research specialization is political theory and popular culture.   He is author of  The Absolute and Star Trek (2017) and Star Trek and the Politics of Globalism (2018).

Review:

"George Gonzalez has written an exhilarating, probing, exciting study of the Trek franchise that focuses on its considerable and enduring value as a politically resistant text. By reorienting scholarship to focus on Trek's commitment to liberal humanism from the Original Series to Star Trek Into Darkness, this study encourages the reader to boldly go back to the origins of Trek's ethical political vision and the immeasurable pleasures and values of its ongoing narrative." - David Greven, Professor, English, University of South Carolina, USA and author of Gender and Sexuality in Star Trek
