    What are cyborgs? How have they been represented in cinema? And why have they generated such an astonishing degree of critical and popular interest? These are the questions that underpin this book. It asks what relevance the cyborg has in exploring the nature of human identity, questioning our relationship to technology and speculating on envisaged prospects for the future. It also goes beyond other work in the field by not only evaluating individual texts but addressing what cyborg films have in common, acknowledging the development they have undergone over the last thirty years, and speculating on the reasons for this transition.

Fully revised and updated since its initial publication in 2005, this paperback edition also includes reference to the cyborg's transition to television, comparing Borg with Cylons, as well as discussing series such as and in order to assess the continued fascination held by fictional cyborgs, their contribution to our sense of subjectivity, and the way they reflect a host of contemporary concerns.
