Animation has had a global renaissance during the 1990s and nowhere is this more evident than in Asia. With the exception of China and Japan most other Asian nations are relatively new to this art form. Over the last decade however the situation has changed dramatically with countries like Taiwan, South Korea, the Philippines and Thailand, as well as China, acting as offshore production plants for North American and European studios. Two other spurs for this mushrooming of activity has been the global growth of terrestrial, cable, satellite and video systems all demanding large menus of programming including animation. A second spur has been the exceptional popularity Japanese anime has enjoyed across Asia, Europe and the United States.Animation in Asia and the Pacific provides the first continent-wide analysis of animation, delving into issues of production, distribution, exhibition, aesthetics and regulation, in this burgeoning field. Animation in Asia and the Pacific also offers vignettes of the fascinating experiences of a group of animation pioneers. The historical and contemporary perspectives derive from interviews, textual analysis, archival research and participation/observation data. Beautifully illustrated with 77 colour and a large number of black and white images.However, despite these developments there has not been a corresponding growth of a serious literature - covering industrial and aesthetic issues - about Asian animation and the small amount of work that has been produced has not been published in the English language. In order to provide both historical and contemporary perspectives, Animation in Asia and the Pacific draws upon interviews, textual analysis, archival research and participation/observation data.

Despite the industry being shutdown by two world wars, having its martial arts films dismissively labeled as 'chopsocky,' and operating on shoestring budgets, the films of Hong Kong have been praised and imitated all over the world. From its beginning in 1909 with the silent short Stealing the Roast Duck to the martial arts classic Enter the Dragon (1973) to Peter Chan's Perhaps Love (2005), a reinvention of Chinese musicals via Hollywood, the vast cinema of Hong Kong has continually reinvented itself. Stars such as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li have become household names, and actors like Andy Lau, Maggie Cheung, Stephen Chiau, Michelle Yeoh, and Chow Yun-fat continue to gain fame throughout the world. And the impact of directors like Ang Lee, Tsui Hark, Wong Kar-wai, and John Woo can be seen nearly everywhere in Hollywood. The Historical Dictionary of Hong Kong Cinema provides essential facts and descriptive evaluation concerning Hong Kong filmmaking and its filmmaking community. This is accomplished through the use of a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, illustrations of individuals and film stills, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on directors, producers, writers, actors, films, film companies, genres, and terminology. Having perused this, readers will not only know considerably more about a rather amazing place, they will have an almost palpable feeling for how it works.

Youth, Media and Culture in the Asia Pacific Region presents an analysis of youth media activities in a diverse, but geographically connected Asia Pacific region. The region, which is spatially connected by its colonial and imperial past, is becoming a significant player in the globalized world. In this context, youth situated in these economically, politically and socially structured communities are redefining their locales through their patterns of media use. The discourse of ‘youth’ in this disparate region is manifest in the media through their identity articulations and social activism. The book illustrates that these ‘youth subcultures’ in the Asia Pacific are part of the well marketed global consumerism culture, and yet at other times independent of the commodifying impetus of global capital. It draws on case studies to examine some of the media practices youth in the region are engaged in and elucidates the process of social change taking place in some Asia Pacific nations. 'This book contributes to the important and growing field of youth media studies. The regionalization of media research is necessarily recuperated here, bringing large populations of media users into a frame of reference that allows critical reflection on the new waves of use and sociality in the Asia Pacific region.' Stephanie Hemelryk Donald, Professor of International Studies, UTS
