The Matrix films, along with the video games, animé and toys inspired by them, are rich with philosophical, religious and social references that cry out for interpretation. Here these ideas are examined in the context of the history of thought and cinema.

The variety of applications in this study is remarkable, engaging thinkers ranging from conservative Christians to postmodernist critics. Feminist issues meet cyberpunk, cosmological perspectives meet mythological and literary analysis. Violence in society, American values, politics, heroic models - all are called into question as several esteemed scholars decode the entire world of the Matrix franchise.

"An intriguing and accessible collection of essays that should appeal to both scholars and students of science fiction, film and popular culture. -Javier Martinez, Editor of Extrapolation

"There have been a number of books published about the Matrix trilogy, but the best by far is Jacking In to the Matrix Franchise. This superb collection of essays provides a wide variety of insightful and critical discussions of the Matrix phenomenon, both as popular art and culture. All of the essays are written in an engaging and highly readable style, and they will be of great interest to the many fans of the film trilogy, as well as to the student of film culture. If you were to own one book about The
Matrix, then this should be it." - Gary Hoppenstand, Editor of The Journal of Popular Culture
