Some brief overview of book

Bond. James Bond. The ultimate British hero-suave, stoic, gadget-driven-was, more than anything, the necessary invention of a traumatized country whose self-image as a great power had just been shattered by the Second World War.

By inventing the parallel world of secret British greatness and glamour, Ian Fleming fabricated an icon that has endured long past its maker's death. In The Man Who Saved Britain, Simon Winder lovingly and ruefully re-creates the nadirs of his own fandom while illuminating what Bond says about sex, the monarchy, food, class, attitudes toward America, and everything in between. The result is an insightful and, above all, entertaining exploration of postwar Britain under the influence of the legendary Agent 007.
