From the legacy of Ian Fleming come these two recently discovered short novels—superb examples of JAMES BOND AT HIS BEST They were written by 007’s creator before his death and are published here in book form for the first time. OCTOPUSSY is set in Fleming’s favourite pleasure paradise, Jamaica in the British West Indies. THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS takes place in, what is for Fleming, a new kind of locale: the border territory that divides East and West Berlin. In both novellas Fleming gives the audacious Bond the power of life—or death—over two very different adversaries. Bond’s first quarry is a rather odd Englishman, the very proper Major Dexter Smythe. Smythe is a retired officer of the Royal Marines. He is a man of no visible wealth, yet he lives in luxurious idleness. His pet diversion—indeed his obsession—is a dangerous experiment that he is conducting with a predator of the deep, with a many-tentacled beauty whom he fondly has named Octopussy.... Bond’s second target is one of Fleming’s most tantalizing villains, a person whom Bond, and the reader, glimpses but never meets. M. sends Bond to West Berlin to safeguard the escape of Number 272, a British agent who is privy to Russia’s top-secret atomic plans. Agent 272 is to make his break for freedom across the East Berlin frontier. The big trouble is: the KGB knows the escape plan and that plan cannot be changed. They have assigned their best sniper, Trigger, to shoot 272 on the run, on a certain street, at a certain time. Armed with a .308-caliber International Experimental Target rifle, Bond must stake out the sniper and kill him before he kills 272...

This book is an analysis of the most significant elements that compose the “Bond formula,” such as names, binary oppositions and narrative patterns. It tackles Ian Fleming’s novels as well as the 22 films of the Eon Productions series and follows the evolution of certain determining features (paradigms) from the text to the screen, to determine their function within the narration. This study reveals how the James Bond universe goes well beyond mere spy adventures to become a genre in itself as well as, now, a standard cultural reference. The book also shows that the underlying ideology of the James Bond narration is not as conservative as it might appear, for it promotes ideals of the Enlightenment period such as secularity, pragmatism and the common good.

The adventures and antics of James Bond have provided the world with many of the most gripping story lines of the last half-century. Fleming?s novels were bestsellers in their day, and the Bond films have been even more popular, becoming the most enduring and successful film franchise in history. By some estimates, half of the world?s population has seen a James Bond movie. A fascinating and accessible account of this global phenomenon, The Politics of James Bond uses the plots and characterizations in the novels and the blockbuster films to place Bond in a historical, cultural, and political context. ø Jeremy Black charts and explores how the settings and the dynamics of the Bond adventures have changed over time in response to shifts in the real-world environment in which the fictional Bond operates. Sex, race, class, and violence are each important factors, as Agent 007 evolves from Cold War warrior to foe of SPECTRE and eventually to world defender pitted against megalomaniacal foes. The development of Bond, his leading ladies, and the major plots all shed light on world political attitudes and reflect elements of the real espionage history of the period. This analysis of Bond?s world and his lasting legacy offers an insightful look at both cultural history and popular entertainment.

When James Chapman's rip-roaring journey through the annals of celluloid "Bond" first appeared in 2000, the "London Evening Standard" said, "Chapman demonstrates that there is more to the 007 franchise than just girls, guns and globe trotting." Stephen O'Brien, writing in "SFX" magazine called the book "Thoughtful, intelligent, ludicrous and a bit snobby. Bit like Bond, really." "Licence to Thrill" went on to establish itself as one of the best books on the subject, and one that has made readers think in new ways about 007. It follows James Bond from the 1962 "Dr No," through all the subsequent films of the franchise--including "Casino Royale"--exploring them within the culture and politics of the times, as well as within film culture itself. For this new edition, Chapman has now brought the story right up to the present, with an updated Introduction, a new first chapter and, most importantly, full coverage of Pierce Brosnan in "The World is Not Enough" and "Die Another Day," as well as a brand new chapter on "Casino Royale" and Daniel Craig's new-look Bond.

In the film world today, there is extraordinary attention paid to actors, actresses and directors, yet the producers who gave many of them their first breaks and helped mold their careers have managed to remain outside the limelight. This work covers producers who gave early breaks to actors and actresses like Al Pacino and Demi Moore, directors like Steven Spielberg and Todd Haynes, and writers like Aaron Sorkin. These legends may never have become known if not for their producers' behind-the-scenes insight and ability to recognize talent. Interviewees include David Brown (Jaws, A Few Good Men), Martin Richards (Chicago, The Shining), Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson (Goldeneye, Die Another Day), Dino DeLaurentiis (La Strada, Hannibal), Michael Phillips (Taxi Driver, The Sting), Martin Bregman (Serpico, Scarface), Lauren Shuler Donner (You've Got Mail, X-Men), Robert Chartoff (Rocky, Raging Bull), Mace Neufeld (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games), Paula Wagner (Vanilla Sky, Mission: Impossible), and many, many more!

A veteran of seven Bond films reveals behind-the-scenes stories of the popular film series—with a foreword by Roger Moore, and many previously unpublished photos Beloved cameraman and director of photography Alec Mills, a veteran of seven James Bond movies, tells the inside story of his 20 years of filming cinema's most famous secret agent. Among many humorous and touching anecdotes, Mills reveals how he became an integral part of the Bond family as a young camera operator on 1969's On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, how he bore the brunt of his old friend Roger Moore's legendary on-set bantering, and how he rose to become the director of photography during Timothy Dalton's tenure as 007. Mills also looks back on a career that took in Return of the Jedi on film and The Saint on television with wit and affection, and this memoir contains many of his and Eon Productions' unpublished behind-the-scenes photographs compiled over a lifetime of filmmaking. Featuring many big names, this book will be a must-have for both the James Bond and film history aficionado.
