This is a brilliant study of utopia and science fiction, from Thomas More to Philip K. Dick, by the master literary critic. "Archaeologies of the Future", Jameson's most substantial work since "Postmodernism", investigates the development of the Utopian form since Thomas More, and interrogates the functions of Utopian thinking in a post-Communist age. The relationship between utopia and science fiction is explored through the representations of otherness...alien life and alien worlds...and a study of the works of Philip K. Dick, Ursula LeGuin, William Gibson, Brian Aldiss, Kim Stanley Robinson and more.

"Archaeologies of the Future is certainly among the most stunning studies of utopia and science fiction ever produced... a vast treasure trove of a book, crammed with brilliant apercus... Jameson is one of the world's most eminent cultural theorists, but he is also a peerless literary critic in the classical sense of the term..." - Terry Eagleton, London Review of Books "Jameson's skill in connecting diverse materials and theories, the suggestiveness of his insights, and his passionate conviction make this an exciting work." - Times Literary Supplement"
