Fistfights. Cars careening off cliffs and exploding. Running on a bridge. Dodging a helicopter. The dune buggy roll. Iconic convertibles. Signature sports jackets. 17 Paseo Verde. L.A. at its coolest.
 
And then there was Peggy.

Throughout the world for generations, these images have brought a smile to the face and a single word to mind: Mannix.
 
The American television series, Mannix, ran on CBS-TV from 1967-1975 during the Golden Age of Television. Mannix starred Mike Connors, and the series was the last production of Desilu, the studio owned by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
 
Mannix was syndicated in over seventy countries during its first run, won Golden Globe and Emmy awards, and innovated the concept of the personalized crime-fighter. Star Mike Connors, who embodied his alter ego, wanted Mannix to show emotion, a departure from type. With such style up-front, the substance behind the character has been overlooked-until now.

And Now, Back to Mannix is more than a TV log or behind the scenes book. The author has carefully crafted a behind the myth book, making the case that Mannix, like other fictional characters, possessed a singular power to make societies and individuals better. The book intersperses a discussion of the richness of character, symbolism, and scenes in the series between a Foreword by Mike Connors, a Prologue by writer and co-Executive Producer David Breckman, and a season by season replay of the thrilling episodes that are still loved today.
 
Author JoAnn M Paul says, "My childhood hero was shot, drugged, poisoned, beaten, tortured, and dumped down hillsides to be left for dead. Nothing could have prepared me better for life!"
 
JoAnn M. Paul, Ph.D.: she is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech.
