Now, having given us a whirlwind tour of science and technology, in this new book he focuses his attention squarely on the New World. Star Trek Nation: An Englishman’s view of America is a desultory and humorous telling-off of Americans that will be engrossing for you if you experienced, or have interest in, the TV, music, and/or atmosphere of the 1960s and 70s.
