From Sean Connery to Daniel Craig- James Bond is the highest-grossing movie franchise of all time. Out-grossing Star Wars- Harry Potter- and the Marvel Cinematic Universe- the world's most iconic and international secret agent has a shelf life of almost six decades- from Dr. No to Spectre. As nuclear missile threats are replaced by a series of subtler threats in a globalized and digital world- Bond is with us still. In The Science of James Bond- we recognize the Bond franchise as a unique genre: spy-fi. A genre of film and fiction that fuses spy fiction with science fiction. We look at Bond's obsessions with super-villains- the future- and world domination or destruction. And we take a peek under the hood of trends in science and tech- often in the form of gadgets and spy devices. This is the only James Bond companion that looks at the film and fiction in such a 'spy-fi' way- taking in weapon wizards- the chemistry of death- threads of nuclear paranoia- and Bond baddies' obsession with the master race!
