Invasions, Space Wars, and Xenocide

Format

Summary
Science fiction includes war stories—which often respond to real-life wars. Ascertain how authors such as H. G. Wells took the subgenre of invasion tales to a new level by reflecting current anxieties such as annexation through fictional tales of intergalactic attacks. You’ll also learn the truth behind The War of the Worlds hoax. Dig deep into themes such as genocide and extermination and how they are depicted in science fiction novels including Orson Scott Card’s Ender Game, Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War, and Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers..
