''ranges widely through the literature of the future from its earliest days to the most recent forecasts of futurology, and takes in much work which tends to be ignored by historians of genre sf. This book broke new ground in the history and sociology of ideas, focusing on the interrelation between differing expectations and predictions of the future in different historical periods and the characteristic future images they yielded, in pictures as well as in words'' (Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
