Star WarsCass Sunstein, a Harvard professor, has signed a deal with the HarperCollins imprint, Dey Street Books. Sunstein plans to write a book entitled The World According to Star Wars.

According to the press release, this book will feature “an exploration of George Lucas’s masterpiece as it relates to the arc of history, rebellions, politics, law, economics, fatherhood, and culture. Sunstein will demonstrate that the Star Wars series is all about serendipity and freedom — about the clouded nature of the future, the dismal failures of plans, and the inevitability, in our lives and our society, of ‘I am your father’ moments, which cast a new light on everything that has gone before.”

Julia Cheiffetz, an executive editor, negotiated the deal with Sarah Chalfant of the Wylie Agency. The publisher will release the book in May 2016.
