From the Back Cover
"Why should you care about this book? For three reasons: first, because this book is consistently clever; second, it's genuinely funny; and third, and most important, because its ideas matter.... Mateusz Machaj takes a fresh approach that sets his work apart within the genre.... Machaj views the Star Wars saga as a parable about the dangers of political power. As he explains, each of the eight canonical films in the series adds its own insights into the nature of power and the corruption it breeds in society. When taken together, they offer a rich and fascinating narrative that weaves together ideas about commerce, social decline, politics, war, empire, and revolution."
Matthew McCaffrey, University of Manchester
"Machaj takes us on a whirlwind journey through the entire Star Wars series to draw out themes and lessons that most people miss, and that are the key to the peace and prosperity of our own galaxy."
Thomas E. Woods Jr., New York Times
bestselling author and host of "The Tom Woods Show"
