Trekkie popular culture sees Star Trek as a unifying myth. Dr Anijar explores this phenomenon in light of the influences of television in children's lives, and the effects of utopian interpretations of Star Trek on teaching practice.


"It would be wrong to read this book as an analysis ofStar Trekfor teachers. it would be equally inappropriate to read it as journalistic reporting on Trekdom. It is instead a deeply serious contribution to curriculum theory. It situates this theory in a new place - a realm of the popular - in such a way that any reader will be ready to do important curriculum work in response." -- Education Review, July 13, 2001
