Critical sites about Starship Troopers

The Nature of “Federal Service” in Robert A. Heinlein�s Starship Troopers
“Robert A. Heinlein�s 1959 novel Starship Troopers has been called one of the most controversial science fiction works ever written. Few who are familiar with science fiction as a whole would dis-agree. Although it contains no sex and no bad language, this relatively short novel contains the detailed exposition of several ideas that have proven almost explosively controversial, within the realm of science fiction and without. Central to the controversy is the book�s notion that a voting franchise must be earned by a would-be citizen. A franchise is not given to anyone, for any reason, until they have served a term (defined in the book as two years) in Federal Service.” Accessing this paper requires that you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed.

Starship Troopers: Film and Heinlein’s Vision
“In adapting Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers to the screen, director Paul Verhoeven faced a daunting challenge in making the author’s heavily politicized (and politically sensitive) imagery palatable to modern audiences. I say that Verhoeven’s twisted, satirical take was just what Heinlein’s novel needed to work on film.”
