first contact sf

I'm compiling two lists: 1) first-contact science fiction, both old and new; and 2) science fiction in which colonialism is a major theme. For the second list, I'd prefer more recent books, say from the 1990s onward, but if you think of a classic I absolutely must know about, please feel free to suggest it. The reason I limited the time period is because so much classic sf has the "human empire" theme, and I'd rather look at the most creative treatments of the theme.

Your comments on how each book addresses the issue would also be helpful.

Thanks!
