Product description

In a provocative analysis of public culture and popular concerns, Jodi Dean examines how serious UFO-logists and their pop-culture counterparts tap into fears, phobias, and conspiracy theories with a deep past and a vivid present in American society. Aliens, the author shows, are cultural icons, in which the new conditions of democratic politics at the millennium can be seen.

Review quote

"A fascinating and provocative book. Dean's major insight about the cultural and political importance of UFO/alien/space discourse and representation at the millennium is convincing and compelling." Elayne Rapping, author of Media-tions: Forays into the Culture and Gender Wars"
