Description

This is one essay from the anthology James Bond in the 21st Century

The staying power of the world’s most dashing secret agent and the evolution of the James Bond franchise are explored in this smart yet nostalgic collection of essays. Leading writers discuss the 10 sexiest Bond girls, the best villains and the controversy surrounding the latest actor to play James Bond. Topics covered range from the playful—how to build a secret lair and avoid the perennial mistakes made by would-be world dominators—to the thought-provoking, such as Bond’s place in the modern world, his Oedipal complex and perceived misogyny, and the unerring allure of the charming spy.
