In Justice and Popular Culture, George Gonzalez deploys his encyclopedic knowledge of the Star Trek franchise to illustrate how popular culture invites mass audiences to actively engage in the discourse of justice and political theory. Gonzalez documents how Star Trek - in its many iterations - enacts a serious dialog on questions of class, race, gender, and the state. He concludes that Star Trek points us toward a thriving classless society free of racial and gender biases (communism), while simultaneously warning us that the world is at a critical turning point which could just as likely end in a dystopian dark age. -- Clyde W. Barrow, University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley
