The ever-growing library of Bondiana (covering both the films and Fleming's original texts) is now straining many a shelf, and a publisher has to come up with something special to avoid 007-style d ja-vu. But this is something of an unusual venture in the genre. The James Bond Legacy chronicles the remarkable evolution of the Bond movies and examines what it is about them that changed cinema forever. This is a book that, decade by decade from the Sixties on, looks at Bond in history and history in Bond. The films are set 'two minutes into the future', and they have both echoed and presaged technological developments as well as the key moments in the Cold War and its aftermath. An ambitious and handsome volume that will attract a variety of markets.From the Publisher:

This title chronciles the evolution of the Bond movies and examines what it is about Bond that changed cinema for ever. Decade by decade from the 1960s on, the book looks at Bond in history and history in Bond. With films that are set "two mintues into the future", they have both echoed and presaged technological developments as well as key moments in the Cold War and its aftermath. The voice of James Bond and his creators is heard through extensive interviews and the book includes commentary from famous fans and film critics from around the world. With over 550 images from the 007 archives and exclusive private collections, this book celebrates all that is Bond.
