Editorial Reviews

"The essays in this volume consider cinema not only as a form of cultural heritage but also as a medium through which other forms of cultural heritage can be preserved, transmitted, and adapted. . .All of the essagys present challenges to national identity and culture, and will certainly be of interest in multiple disciplines - Asian studies, theater, cinema, performance studies, cultural studies, musicology, and anthropology, among others. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." - CHOICE    "This book addresses the important connection between film and theatre in East Asia, with special attention to popular genres such as martial arts and horror. This is a timely and significant contribution to cinema studies and theatre studies." - Yomi Braester, Professor of Comparative Literature and Cinema Studies, University of Washington
