Robert A. Caplen has released a new paperback version of his groundbreaking work about the evolution of the Bond Girls.

In Shaken & Stirred: The Feminism of James Bond (the revised 2012 edition), Caplen focuses upon the cultural significance of the Bond Girl, one of the most celebrated and beloved cultural icons of the twentieth century, and explains how the James Bond films responded to or reacted against feminism and Women's Liberation.
