The Encyclopedia covers the genre from 1920 to 1994. The genre, however, can be very confusing: films often have several titles, and many of the stars have more than one pseudonym. In an effort to clarify some of the confusion, the authors have included all the information available to them on almost 3,300 films. Each entry includes a listing of the production company, the cast and crew, distributors, running times, reviews with star ratings whenever possible, and alternate film titles. A list of film series and one of the stars' pseudonyms, in addition to a 7,900 name index, are also included. Illustrated.

Die aktuelle Konjunktur exzentrischen Erzählens im gegenwärtigen Kino ist längst nicht mehr bloß die Illustration einer condition postmoderne, sie verweist vielmehr auf die Hybridisierung von Erzählung und Spiel im digitalen Medienumbruch. Insbesondere im massenattraktiven Spielfilm stehen nicht mehr die selten gewordenen Identifikationsofferten im Zentrum des Interesses und die Zuschauer sorgen sich auch nicht um Interpretationshypothesen, sondern sie finden Vergnügen an Erzählrätseln und verfolgen neugierig das Spiel mit unterschiedlichen Plotvarianten oder paradoxalen Welten. In den Beiträgen dieses Bandes werden Formen dieser Hybridisierung exemplarisch aufgeschlüsselt und genealogisch nachvollzogen.

The Unauthorized Jackie Chan Encyclopedia offers readers and fans a comprehensive A-to-Z look at everything related to Jackie Chan and his unparalleled popularity and success. Regularly referred to as the world's biggest superstar, Jackie Chan has enjoyed more then three full decades of celebrity, and was only the second (after Bruce Lee) Asian star to gain full acceptance by - even domination of - the American pop film genre. The book's A-to-Z format is another huge hook here - besides Chan's perennial popularity. (And, since Chan produces at least one major US movie each year, his continued popularity and presence is virtually guaranteed.) This encyclopedic approach has been used successfully for other genre books, such as Encyclopedia Madonnica (not ours), but it has never been done for Jackie Chan. Acclaimed author John Corcoran (The Ultimate Martial Arts Q & A Book, Summer 2001), has spent his entire professional life in the martial arts and martial arts journalism. He is well connected and well positioned to support the book as needed. This is a very strong, timely addition to our martial arts list (This book is not authorized by Jackie Chan or his companies or representat

Compiled by two skilled librarians and a Taiwanese film and culture specialist, this volume is the first multilingual and most comprehensive bibliography of Taiwanese film scholarship, designed to satisfy the broad interests of the modern researcher. The second book in a remarkable three-volume research project, An Annotated Bibliography for Taiwan Film Studies catalogues the published and unpublished monographs, theses, manuscripts, and conference proceedings of Taiwanese film scholars from the 1950s to 2013. Paired with An Annotated Bibliography for Chinese Film Studies (2004), which accounts for texts dating back to the 1920s, this series brings together like no other reference the disparate voices of Chinese film scholarship, charting its unique intellectual arc. Organized intuitively, the volume begins with reference materials (bibliographies, cinematographies, directories, indexes, dictionaries, and handbooks) and then moves through film history (the colonial period, Taiwan dialect film, new Taiwan cinema, the 2/28 incident); film genres (animated, anticommunist, documentary, ethnographic, martial arts, teen); film reviews; film theory and technique; interdisciplinary studies (Taiwan and mainland China, Taiwan and Japan, film and aboriginal peoples, film and literature, film and nationality); biographical materials; film stories, screenplays, and scripts; film technology; and miscellaneous aspects of Taiwanese film scholarship (artifacts, acts of censorship, copyright law, distribution channels, film festivals, and industry practice). Works written in multiple languages include transliteration/romanized and original script entries, which follow universal AACR-2 and American cataloguing standards, and professional notations by the editors to aid in the use of sources.
