Summary
"The first topic of this examination is how the films use the language of colonialism to emphasize the idea of imperialism. Next the author looks at how Asian influences provide a subtext for much of the action. Then turns to the representation of people of color in the Star Wars universe, and how other ethnicities are represented overall"--Provided by publisher
