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.

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

' "Did you see the big fight this weekend'" The question used to be about boxing matches, when the giants of the fight world were Mike Tyson and Roy Jones. Now fans are leaving the sweet science in droves for the combat sport of the future: mixed martial arts (MMA). MMA has drawn millions on cable and network television, as well as out-performed professional wrestling and boxing on pay-per-view. Fans are attracted to the sport, but unlike boxing (where strategy and technique are limited to using both your left and right hands), an MMA fight can be surprisingly complicated. The MMA Encyclopedia puts the fighters, the facts, and the fundamentals of the world's fastest growing sport at your fingertips as the definitive reference guide to mixed martial arts. The encyclopedia will break the MMA language barrier for those who don't know a wristlock from a wristwatch, while at the same time offering perspective and analysis that will entertain the hardcore fan who already has the basics down pat. With three appendices that detail the results of every MMA'fight in history, this the ultimate reference book for the ultimate sport.

Though generally perceived and advertised as means of self-defense, body sculpting, and self-discipline, martial arts are actually social tools that respond to altered physical, social, and psychological environments. This book examines how practitioners have responded to stimuli such as feminism, globalism, imperialism, militarism, nationalism, slavery, and the commercialization of sport.

In a follow-up to his popular "Championship Sambo: Submission Holds and Groundfighting", Steve Scott teaches you 85 essential armlocks for jujitsu, judo, sambo and mixed martial arts. The armlocks taught in this Encyclopedia apply to gi and no-gi combat sports, allowing you to use them in a wide variety of situations, including self-defence and street applications. Steve Scott makes it easy to learn the most effective and popular armlocks of modern grappling sports by organising them into four broad categories: the cross-body armlock, the bent armlock, the straight armlock and the armpit lock. In addition to teaching how to set-up and apply each of the locks, he shows you how to defend against common armlocks, fight from both the mount and guard, lever your opponents arm free for an attack and vary your grip for maximum power. For those new to grappling, you will also learn the core skills of applying armlocks, controlling position, and training smart plus a glossary of grappling terms and a Rules of the Room guide to common sense rules on the mat.
