Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James Bond: The Legacy chronicles the incredible evolution of the Bond phenomenon, from the literary birth in 1952, to the spymania of the 60s, the political minefields of the 70s, 80s, and beyond, to the latest 007 adventure, Die Another Day. This is the world according to 007, a bonded history of modern times revealing the global influence of the most famous secret agent ever created. Bond has actually shaped history, changing the way we watch movies, think about spies, and define global politics. The book reveals how Bond has given us contexts for the social upheavals of our times, from the Cold War to the sexual revolution. He as given us an icongraphy of elegance, a template for mastering technology, a modern myth by which we define our enemies. Through the years, James Bond has been imitated, celebrated, and castigated, but never before has the character's influence on popular culture — and vice versa — been investigated as insightfully and entertainingly.

James Bond: The Legacy brings the reader into the world of 007 like no book before, written and designed to be appreciated by the casual fan as well as the discerning critic, and to be enjoyed by all who love the dangerous and delectable adventures of Ian Fleming's incredible creation — James Bond.

Review:

"It's hard to do justice to such a mythic character, but documentary producers Cork and Scivally manage just that with this volume, a tasty feast for any 007 aficionado....[S]ometimes, only the original will do. This snazzy book adroitly fits the bill." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] detailed dossier of facts and photos that fans will find essential. Highly recommended." Library Journal
