Review
"The repercussions of Campbell''s death provide merely one context for Ashley''s study, which addresses all the major influences on the genre. As such, it is both extraordinary in scope and meticulous in detail, given the range of magazines and stories described. Despite Ashley''s own occasionally subjective assertions and the sometimes partisan opinions of cited writers and critics, Gateways is relentlessly informative. . . . Ashley should be congratulated for his achievement. He has rendered material that might have read like a list into a rich and vibrant history. Indeed, his engaging style reawakens the very essence of science fiction: the sense of wonder."–Times Higher Education Supplement (Times Higher Education Supplement ) –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction (Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies

Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction (Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies LUP) by Chris Pak
English | July 1, 2016 | ISBN: 1781382840 | 263 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book explores the emergence and development of terraforming in science fiction from H.G. Wells's The War of the Worlds (1898) to James Cameron's blockbuster Avatar (2009). Terraforming is the process of making other worlds habitable for human life. Its counterpart on Earth - geoengineering - has begun to receive serious consideration as a way to address the effects of climate change. This book asks how science fiction has imagined the ways we shape both our world and other planets and how stories of terraforming reflect on science, society and environmentalism.

Historical Economics: Art or Science?

Historical Economics: Art or Science? by Charles P. Kindleberger
English | Nov. 21, 1990 | ISBN: 0520073436 | 438 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Charles P. Kindleberger's writing has ranged widely in the past, from international economics to such specialized topics as the Marshall Plan. In recent years, however, his perspective has shifted to one that tempers the rigidity of technical economics with the flexibility of the liberal arts. Historical economics, drawing on history, politics, cultural anthropology, sociology, and geography, bridges the gap between abstraction and fact engendered by traditional conceptions of economic science. Inherently interdisciplinary, historical economics ultimately leads to a more meaningful understanding of contemporary economic phenomena.
