With the success of such stars as Jackie Chan, Brandon Lee, Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal, Chow Yun-Fat, and Jet Lee, martial arts movies continue to be popular with the fans. While these stars take the genre to new heights, Citadel Press is happy to announce the newest addition to its popular film books series.

First published in cloth as Martial Arts Movies, then in paper as From Bruce Lee to the Ninjas, the original incarnations of this book sold upward of 20,000 copies. In this new, revised edition, author Richard Meyers includes the aforementioned stars and more. He has added a new section, "The Ultimate Martial Arts Movie Library", which details the best movies to see and where to find them. The result is the most up-to-date, authoritative, kick-butt book available about martial arts films and their stars.
