La biografía más completa jamás escrita sobre uno de los cineastas más admirados e influyentes de los últimos cincuenta años: Georges Lucas. El 25 de mayo de 1977 se estrenó en apenas cuarenta salas estadounidenses un film con todos los números para fracasar. Sin embargo, pronto mereció grandiosos titulares hasta convertirse en un fenómeno de taquilla que cambió de un plumazo la manera de producir, anunciar y rentabilizar películas. La cinta se titulaba Star Wars y su creador era un tal George Lucas. El cineasta aún volvería a dar el golpe con la saga de Indiana Jones y, no contento con ello, llegó a forjar pequeños imperios: Lucasfilm, THX, Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar. En esta biografía, tanto colegas como competidores de Lucas ofrecen una mirada exhaustiva sobre la vida y los métodos de trabajo de un hombre que transformó la manera de hacer cine y de verlo. Reseñas: «Todo en la trayectoria de Lucas en el cine, desde sus inicios hasta su actual estatus de leyenda, todo está aquí. Los retratos que ofrecen colegas, rivales, mentores y amigos son brutalmente honestos. Una biografía indispensable.» Rolling Stone «Un libro adictivo. Jones retrata a la perfección la presión asfixiante del creador, los encontronazos con los estudios y el baile constante con el fracaso que precedieron a obras maestras como American Graffiti o Star Wars.» BBC «Una biografía clara y veraz, donde hasta el más mínimo detalle sorprende.» The New York Times «Como si de un aguerrido arqueólogo se tratara, Jones sale victorioso del reto, llevando bajo el brazo un relato formidablemente completo de la vida y obra de George Lucas.» Washington Post «Con su prosa hipnótica y sus investigaciones en profundidad, este libro gustará hasta a los seguidores más exigentes de Lucas.» Boston Globe «Incluso los años de formación del director están retratados con maestría. También las reflexiones e interioridades de cómo funciona la industria del cine (y cómo la cambió Lucas) se nos aparecen como una aventura trepidante.» Chicago Tribune

A director, producer, and writer, George Lucas is the power behind "The Force." The son of a conservative small-town businessman, he grew up to become arguably the most identifiable and popular filmmaker in the history of the medium. Yet unlike his more publicly engaged contemporaries, Lucas rarely grants reporters an audience. This first book of Lucas's interviews affords fans and students of film and science fiction a rare opportunity. Editor Sally Kline collects conversations from the reticent director spanning Lucas's entire career, from the making of his first film, 1971's THX-1138, through American Graffiti, the triumph of the Star Wars trilogy, and even a 1999 interview given while awaiting the release of Star Wars: Episode One--The Phantom Menace. In interviews from venues such as Rolling Stone, Playboy, and American Film, Lucas reveals his distrust of the Hollywood establishment, his love for making movies, and his unambiguous values and how those values translate into the epic clash between good and evil created when he explores characters like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. Lucas revolutionized the movie industry and created the most successful film series of all time. Along with films of his close friend Steven Spielberg, Lucas's releases invented the notion of blockbuster movies. Before the end of the millennium, he could count the loyal fans of the Star Wars trilogy in the millions. Sally Kline is film critic for The Journal newspapers. She has worked as a film commentator on a number of Washington, D.C. radio stations and as a guest lecturer at George Washington University. A freelance writer and researcher, she has contributed to two books, including a biography of Robert F. Kennedy.

George Lucas is one of the most innovative bigtime players on the movie scene. His three Star Wars films and the trio featuring the action hero Indiana Jones (all six of which Lucas conceived, produced and co-wrote) are some of the most popular films ever made. To finance them, he masterminded a revolutionary redrawing of the financial agreements under which films were produced in Hollywood, snatching away control of funding, intellectual content and the distribution of profits from studios, and placing them in the hands of the film-makers themselves.

George Lucas spoke about the didactic role of cinema and about his own work being presented through the “moral megaphone” of the film industry. A considerable body of scholarship on the six-part Star Wars series argues (unconvincingly) that the franchise promoted neo-conservatism in American culture from the late 1970s onward. But there is much in Lucas’ grand space opera to suggest something more ideologically complex is going on. This book challenges the view of the saga as an unambiguously violent text exemplifying reactionary politics, and discusses the films’ identity politics with regard to race and gender.

What significance does "ethics" have for the men and women serving in the military forces of nations around the world? What core values and moral principles collectively guide the members of this "military profession?" This book explains these essential moral foundations, along with "just war theory," international relations, and international law. The ethical foundations that define the "Profession of Arms" have developed over millennia from the shared moral values, unique role responsibilities, and occasional reflection by individual members the profession on their own practices - eventually coming to serve as the basis for the "Law of Armed Conflict" itself. This book focuses upon the ordinary men and women around the world who wear a military uniform and are committed to the defense of their countries and their fellow citizens. It is about what they do, how they do it, what they think about it, how they behave when carrying out their activities, and how they are expected to behave, both on and off the battlefield (whether in, or out of, uniform) - and what everyone (and not just military personnel themselves) needs to know about this. The book also examines how military personnel are treated and regarded by those whom they have sworn to defend and protect, as well as how they treat and regard one another within their respective services and organizational settings. Finally, the book discusses the transformations in military professionalism occasioned by new developments in armed conflict, ranging counterinsurgency warfare and humanitarian military intervention, to cyber conflict, military robotics, and private military contracting. From China to Russia, author George Lucas effectively sheds light on today's military ethics in existence throughout the world.
