Item description for World Weavers: Globalization, Science Fiction, and The Cybernetic Revolution by Wong Kin Yuen , Gary Westfahl & Amy Kit-sze Chan...

This book is the first ever study of the relationship between globalization and science fiction. Scientific innovations provide citizens of different nations with a unique common ground and the means to establish new connections with distant lands. "World Weavers" attempts to investigate how our world has grown more and more interconnected due not only to technological advances, but also to a shared interest in those advances and to what they might lead to in the future. Science fiction has long been both literally and metaphorically linked to the emerging global village. It now takes on the task of exploring how the cybernetic revolution might transform the world and keep it one step ahead of the real world, despite ever-accelerating developments. As residents of a world that is undeniably globalized, science-fictional and virtual, it is incumbent on us to fully understand just how we came to live in such a world, and to envisage where this world may be heading next.
