Bond Behind the Iron Curtain by James Fleming

I have just finished reading a new book entitled "Bond Behind the Iron Curtain" by James Fleming, nephew of Ian.

This small volume delves into the reaction in the Eastern Bloc to Bond, or perhaps more correctly, to the enormous popularity of Bond throughout much of the world at a time when we were all wrapped up in the Cold War. Some of the stories I had heard before, although generally not in as much detail, while others were new to me. Fleming has clearly done a great deal of research into the topic and the result is a very readable, rather entertaining, and highly informative new angle on Bond and his genuine influence on the Cold War.

    I bought this book recently directly from The Book Collector website itself. I had to buy it as the subject matter fascinates me and of course it's another book by the Fleming dynasty to add to the collection. You can't go wrong with that family of writers. I did miss out on the signed first edition though I've since learned that apparently these can be requested from the publisher at no extra cost to the buyer. Ah, well.
