The main criterion for both selection and evaluation is how much the book helps us to understand the Bond myth.
The better understanding can be achieved through a variety of book types, whether memoirs of Bond actors, excursions into the history of the Cold War, or children’s impressions of going to the movies.
We have selected books on the following topics:
The creators and creation process,
Thoughts on Bond, personal impressions,
Atmosphere – cultural context, history, the spirit of the times,
Around Bond. Lists for additional reading.
All these books contain information of several kinds. Each type of information has its own quality criteria. Read about it here.
