Terraforming is the process of making other worlds habitable for human life. Its counterpart on Earth — geoengineering — has begun to receive serious consideration as a way to address the effects of climate change. This book asks how science fiction has imagined the ways we shape both our world and other planets and how stories of terraforming reflect on science, society and environmentalism.
It traces the growth of the motif of terraforming in stories by such writers as H. Clarke, the counter cultural novels of Frank Herbert, Ursula K. It explores terraforming as a nexus for environmental philosophy, the pastoral, ecology, the Gaia hypothesis, the politics of colonisation and habitation, tradition and memory. Terraforming: Ecopolitical Transformations and Environmentalism in Science Fiction shows how contemporary environmental awareness and our understanding of climate change is influenced by science fiction, and how terraforming in particular has offered scientists, philosophers, and many other readers a motif to aid in thinking in complex ways about the human impact on planetary environments.
Amidst contemporary anxieties about climate change, terraforming offers an important vantage from which to consider the ways humankind shapes and is shaped by their world.

The European exploration of the Americas is a valuable analogy; the true beneficiaries of the Columbian discovery were not the aristocrats, sailors and warriors but the farmers and planters that followed them.
