Fighting the Forces is a collection of academic essays on the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Covering the show from season one through five, it contains some excellent essays on the deeper cultural meanings that can be read into Buffy. The book would probably appeal more to die-hard Buffy fans, and people who are interested in media studies. It is an academic view of Buffy. The essays are easy enough to read and understand, but they aren't so much about the show itself, as the subtext of the show. It uses literary criticism to discuss Buffy, and several essays relate to how Buffy informs identity politics. It is definitely an excellent collection of essays for anybody who wants to get immersed in Buffy studies, and a good way to get familiar with some of the academics involved in Buffy studies.
