Science fiction in the twentieth century by Edward James ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science Fiction in the Twentieth Century is the first book to challenge the traditional approach to science fiction as a series of texts and authors. Science fiction is identified as a cultural phenomenon whose ideas and imagery, through books, films, television, computer games, and children's toys, have become part of the everyday language of the late twentieth century. Edward James traces the development of science fiction as a distinct genre from 1895, the year of publication of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine, through the growing American domination of the field in the 1930s and 1940s, to the emergence of cyberpunk in the 1980s. A peculiarly twentieth-century genre, science fiction has tried to make sense of the rapidity of technological change and the impact which science and technology have made on our society. By imagining other worlds and possible futures, the genre allows us to view our present-day situation with greater detachment and perspective

Europe's barbarians, AD 200-600 by Edward James ( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Barbarians' is the name the Romans gave to those who lived beyond the frontiers of the Roman Empire - the peoples they considered 'uncivilised'. Most of the written sources concerning the barbarians come from the Romans too, and as such, need to be treated with caution. Only archaeology allows us to see beyond Roman prejudices - and yet these records are often as difficult to interpret as historical ones. Expertly guiding the reader through such historiographical complexities, Edward James traces the history of the barbarians from the height of Roman power through to AD 600, by which

Some of the earliest books ever written, including The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Odyssey, deal with monsters, marvels, extraordinary voyages, and magic, and this genre, known as fantasy, remained an essential part of European literature through the rise of the modern realist novel.
