From its very first frame, the Star Wars series created a compelling universe with complex
characters and engaging storytelling. This collection offers a fascinating psychological
analysis of every aspect of George Lucas's richly rendered galaxy with all its characters
and stories. Expert contributors led by Travis Langley ( Batman and Psychology: A Dark and
Stormy Knight; The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead) examine such topics
as family ties, gender, prejudice, values, villainy, and heroism itself, including a look
at how psychoanalysis and archetypes directly shaped the original trilogy. They shine a
light into the hidden part of the psyche and reveal the ultimate lesson of Star Wars.
