Some Kind of Paradise: The Emergence of American Science Fiction
Clareson reveals the interplay between literary expressionism and intellectual history and shows how science fiction was a popular response to world events during the period 1870-1930. He emphasizes that at least before World War II, the predominant tone of American science fiction was optimistic and that one way or another--through advanced technology or a return to primitiveness--the writers were going to produce Some Kind of Paradise.
