“Scholars of mainland China film both inside and outside China will consider this to be a standard bibliographic guide and crucial reference tool for many years to come. In my view, there is really no competing work. I can’t imagine a serious library anywhere in the world that would not want a copy.” —Paul Pickowicz, Professor of History, University of California, San Diego
