Love and Let Die: Bond, the Beatles and the British Psyche (Paperback)John Higgs (author)
Reflecting on six decades of James Bond and The Beatles, Higgs' crafts an incisive analysis of two overwhelming British cultural institutions and the contrasting visions of the nation that they represent.
Dr No, the first Bond film, and Love Me Do, the first Beatles record, were released on the same day. Most countries can only dream of creating a phenomenon on this scale; Britain produced two on one windy October afternoon.
Told over sixty dramatic years, Love and Let Die is the story of two culture touchstones that continue to define our aspirations and fantasies; of opposing values, visions of Britain and ideas about male identity; and of how a clash between working class liberation and establishment control exploded on the global stage.
