The Jin Yong Phenomenon: Chinese Martial Arts Fiction and Modern Chinese Literary History

by Ann Huss and Jianmei Liu

Reviews

“A successful study of Jin Yong’s literature with valuable and insightful opinions … a pleasure to read.” – CLEAR

"The authors in this volume examine the martial arts tradition from many vantage points, and are able to situate the tree within the forest of culture, history, and politics. These collected essays make a great contribution to a historically nuanced image of China. These days, many students and readers are introduced to Chinese culture, not by studying the Chinese language or classics, but by way of the martial arts. The martial arts may or may not serve as an appetizer leading to the main course. This volume will shepherd intrigued guests directly to the main course and into the temple of Chinese history and culture."
