Promotional Information

'Another day, another Star Wars book, but this one does a rare thing - concentrate on the film itself rather than its mythos. There's thoughtful stuff, suggesting SW continues Lucas' development as an experimental filmmaker and arguing that Lucas is rooting for both Empire and rebellion.' - Empire 'For once, a scholarly study that doesn't tut and moan about merchandising and the death of New Hollywood... Its clear, concise arguments include a taut dismissal of the prequels that doesn't resort to Binks-bashing.' - Total Film
