The Mysterious Case of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys by Carole Kismaric & Marvin Heiferman
Second-hand copy - condition great
THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS, with marvellous text and brilliant design, uncovers one of the most intriguing mysteries of them all - the huge and enduring popularity of the fearless young crime fighters and their fascinating cultural status.
From THE SECRET OF THE OLD CLOCK to ROCK 'N ROLL RENEGADES, the popular teen sleuths have deduced and detected their way through hundreds of adventures. Although the plots have changed with the times, the books have always starred the same clean teens with justice and generosity in their hearts. The book traces the rise of the teenager and youth culture, from bobbysoxers to antiwar protestors, examining the feisty independence of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boy's fantasies of masculine heroics. Hip and nostalgic at the same time, this richly illustrated study provides surprising insights into these beloved icons.
