Context In Robert Ludlum's Thrillers

Uploaded by hate_love_life on Nov 11, 2003

“Discuss how Robert Ludlum uses action packed thriller novels to confront modern day issues of religion, war, belief and terrorism.”

These methods have evolved with the modern human brain, from cassettes to CD’s to digital music. From films to television to VCR’s and DVD players, times just keep on changing.
