Publication of Revisioning 007: James Bond and Casino Royale written by Christoph Lindner and published by Wallflower Press.

Revisioning 007 is a lively collection of new essays on the reinvention of James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig in his first appearance as Agent 007. Treating Casino Royale as a case study in popular film culture and as a significant turning point in the 007 series, the book offers innovative readings of the film and its inte-rrelations with the Bond franchise, the culture industry and recent developments in cinema, society and world politics.
Essay topics range from the analysis of 007's masochism, voyeurism and hyper-mobility, to the examination of the film's testicular torture scene, the links between international politics and high-stakes gambling and the changing role of the secret agent in a post-9/11 world order.
