I. “Blade Runner” Three Decades Later:
How a Masterpiece of Production Design
Left Its Mark on Los Angeles (and Vice Versa)

II. Discovering the Greek Hero in
“Blade Runner”

III. Two Dystopias: The Post-Apocalyptic
Earths of “Blade Runner” and
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

IV. The Smiling Geisha and Ogi no Mato:
The Significance of Japanese Culture in “Blade Runner”
