“Examines Cameron’s place in the transitional paradigm of a post-analogue, posthuman, and painterly cinema where impossible bodies are rendered through reassuringly old-fashioned narrative and spectacular conventions that have made his films the biggest on the planet. This comprehensive study outlines how his enduring fascination with bleeding-edge technology has both caught the public imagination and time and again proved a touchstone of the zeitgeist.”
~Harvey O’Brein, University College Dublin
