Editorial Reviews


"Offers the reader a portrait of Kurosawa's work in circulation throughout global culture, a focus that is unlike that found in other studies of Kurosawa...Martinez's sensitive understanding of Japanese culture provides fresh and intriguing interpretations of the plot material found in four key Kurosawa movies."--Journal of Japanese Studies
"A very welcome addition to the growing number of English language books discussing Kurosawa and his works. It approaches the topic from an angle that has often been referred to, but never quite explored with the dedication and enthusiasm that Martinez has given it."

About the Author

Dolores Martinez is a Reader in Anthropology with special reference to Japan at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.
