Ana Matronic looks at 100 of the most epic robots from popular culture.

In the not too distant future, mankind faces the possibility of being overthrown by its own creations.

In Robot Takeover, Ana Matronic presents 100 of the most legendary robots and what makes them iconic - their creators, purpose, design and why their existence has shaken, or in some cases, comforted us. Through 100 iconic robots - from Maria in Fritz Lang's Metropolis to the Sentinels of The Matrix and beyond, via the Gunslinger (Westworld), R2-D2 (Star Wars) etc. - this is a comprehensive look at the robot phenomenon. As well as these 100 entries on specific robots, there are features on the people who invent robots, the moral issues around robot sentience, and the prevalence of robots in music, art and fashion, and more. It's the only robot book you need.

With fighters, seducers and psychos in their ranks, it's best you get ready for the robot revolution.

Know your enemy...
