A new book all about the politics, themes, and impact of Battlestar Galactica is hitting shelves this week. It’s called Finding Battlestar Galactica: An Unauthorized Guide, and it examines BSG from some unique perspectives, including sections such as “Political Realities and the Culture of Fear” and “Battlestar and the Bush Era.” The book comes from writers Lynette Porter, David Lavery, and Hillary Robson, a team that previously has turned out several other books that critically examine television pop phenomena. Their earlier efforts include:
- Lost’s Buried Treasures by Lavery, Porter, and Robson
- Unlocking the Meaning of Lost by Lavery and Porter
- Saving the World: A Guide To Heroes by Porter, Lavery, and Robson
Finding Battlestar Galactica releases this week with a cover price of $14.95, but you can get it at Amazon for $11.51.
