Product Description

James Bond entered the world in 1953 with the novel Casino Royale by Ian Fleming. Since then, the British secret agent code named 007 has transform the biggest media phenomenon of the up to date age, surpassing and outlasting previous cultural icons such as Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan, and The Saint. Bond has conquered all forms of media—from books, films, and radio to comic strips and video games—whilst inspiring a tidal wave of merchandise and legion of imitators. Despite the fact that the world has changed almost beyond recognition since his debut, his continuing relevance is affirmed by the more than one generations who have thrilled to his exploits.This book for the first time provides the full enthralling story of how the espionage fantasies of a slightly melancholy journalist came to captivate the world. It exposes the setbacks at the back of the triumphs, from Fleming’s increasing boredom with his own creation to regular crises over re-casting of the cinematic Bond and legal battles in the 1990s that virtually destroyed the film franchise. With the assistance of Bond scholars, Fleming intimates, Bond film crew, and others, James Bond: The Secret History shows how the man with the License to Kill overcame each hurdle to transform the greatest fantasy hero of all time.
