              In order to understand Bruce Lee, we must look beyond Bruce Lee to the artist's intricate cultural and historical contexts. This work begins by contextualising Lee, examining his films and martial arts work, and his changing cultural status within different times and places. The ...text examines Bruce Lee's films and philosophy in relation to the popular culture and cultural politics of the 1960s and 1970s, and it addresses the resurgence of his popularity in Hong Kong and China in the twenty-first century. The study also explores Lee's ongoing legacy and influence in the West, considering his function as a shifting symbol of ethnic politics and the ways in which he continues to inform Hollywood film-fight choreography. Beyond Bruce Lee ultimately argues Lee is best understood in terms of cultural translation and that his interventions and importance are ongoing.

              Rey Chow is one of the most prominent intellectuals working in the humanities today. She contributes to as many disciplines as she weaves into her elegantly structured, comparative critiques, and her ever-expanding oeuvre confronts the interlocking and overlapping fields of film,... sex, gender, ethnography, postcolonialism, visual culture, cultural studies, and Asian society and politics. Chow's essays connect topics as dissimilar as ethnic mothers and dinosaurs, avant-garde film and the politics of ethnicity, and high theory and area studies. The first anthology to gather and situate Chow's vitally relevant, transnational thought, this collection not only introduces readers to Chow's most important theoretical explorations but also serves as an ideal entry point into the fields she transforms.Praise for Rey Chow [Rey Chow is] methodologically situated in the contentious spaces between critical theory and cultural studies, and always attending to the implications of ethnicity. & mdash; Social Semiotics Rich and powerful work that provides both a dazzling synthesis of contemporary cultural theory and at the same time an exemplary critique of Chinese cinema. & mdash;China Information Should be read by all who are concerned with the future of human rights, liberalism, multiculturalism, identity politics, and feminism. & mdash;Dorothy Ko Wide-ranging, theoretically rich, and provocative...completely restructures the problem of ethnicity. & mdash;Fredric Jameson
