   The development of the genre of science fiction in France, England, and the US from the mid-nineteenth century to World War II is closely bound up with the history of colonialism, the scientific discourses generated during colonial exploration and expansion, and the ideologies by which French, English, and American publics understood their relation to colonialism.
