Description

Star Wars: The Triumph of Nerd Culture engagingly reveals how the most popular film franchise of all time sprang from the mind of a deeply insecure nerd, who then inspired and betrayed a generation of fans.

Josef Benson offers an unauthorised and provocative expose of the Star Wars franchise, fuelled by George Lucas’s insecurities and the vengefulness of a fervent fan-base who felt betrayed when Lucas defiled the original films.

Benson presents the conflict between George Lucas and Star Wars fans as comparable to the twisted relationship between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. Just as there is a riveting saga within the Star Wars universe that centres on the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker and the redemption of Darth Vader, so too has a saga unfolded in relation to George Lucas and Star Wars fandom.

Star Wars fans both love and hate Star Wars and George Lucas, he is equally responsible for their pleasure and pain. Star Wars: Triumph of Nerd Culture delves deeper into the Star Wars universe than any book has gone before. Providing a must-read for Star Wars fans and sending readers away able to watch Star Wars in the same way again.
