No previous book has considered this subject with such breadth, and Britton intertwines reality and fantasy in ways that illuminate both. He reveals how most themes and devices in the genre were established in the first years of the twentieth century, and also how they have been used quite differently from decade to decade, depending on the political concerns of the time.

In all, Beyond Bond offers a timely and penetrating look at an intriguing world of fiction, one that sometimes, and in ever-fascinating ways, can seem all too real. And he delves into such aspects of the genre as gadgetry, technology, and sexuality-aspects that have changed with the times as much as the politics have.

A veritable reference book of interconnected facts about the espionage genre and a great read. Included in the tome is a chronological outline of spy fiction through out the past years. Anyone who thinks James Bond was the first; but wonders where he came from needs to read this book. The best part of the book for me was understanding how life imitates art and vice versa.

The actual historical events of the times many times informs art and it's great to see how that happens in this book. Recommended to anyone who wants a greater understanding of the espionage genre; while specific enough to pique anyone's interest enough to dig further. Wes Britton's 'Beyond Bond' is a must buy for any spy aficionado worth the radio in his shoe.
Wes manages to cram more interesting detail about spies into a book than one would think possible. I have been closely associated musically with the film spy movement, James Bond Theme, The Prisoner and others, for more than 40 years and this book proves how little I knew.
