Education in east Asia varies widely, due to the cultural and political histories of each country. The communist governments of China, North Korea, and Vietnam mandate schooling differently from the limited democracy of Hong Kong and the parliamentary government of Japan. The history of the educational philosophies, systems, and curricula of nine East Asian countries are described here, with a timeline highlighting educational developments, and a special "day in the life" feature, a personal account of what it is like for a student to attend school in that country. -Cambodia -China -Hong Kong -Japan -North and South Korea -Philippines -Singapore -Vietnam

A veritable bible for fans and newcomers alike, Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film offers an extraordinary close-up of the hitherto overlooked golden age of Japanese cult cinema from the 1950s through the 1970s. Having unique access to top maverick filmmakers and Japanese genre film icons, Chris Desjardins brings together interviews with, and original writings on, such transgressive directors as Seijun Suzuki (Branded to Kill) and Koji Wakamatsu (Ecstasy of the Angels), as well as performers like Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba (The Streetfighter, Kill Bill Vol. 1) and Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood). Desjardins brings us up to date with an overview of such Japanese "enfants terribles" as Takashi Miike (Audition) and Kiyoshi Kurasawa (Cure). Illustrated with fantastic stills and posters from some of Japan's finest cult and action films, the book also provides detailed extras including filmographies and related bibliographies.
