Bond, James Bond

For those of you looking for a little heavy reading, The Story of Bond is an anthropological study of the epitomy of American cultural heroes by Lee Drummond.

A few thoughts of my own while reading this...
  • Bond is the epitome of American heroes, despite being British, because of the "can-do, authority be damned, the little guy can beat the evil-international-corporate-terrorist bastards." And he always gets the hot chicks.

  • Anthropologists have some running fueds and like to take great big hits at each other in midst of seemingly professional studies.

  • Intellectualism is, in itself, boring and pedandic. (Is that a tautaology?)
