The Art of Chinese Kung Fu comprehensively depicts the artistic and humanistic heritage of Chinese kung fu. It presents both the dream world of kung fu we see on the big screen, as well as the hidden world of kung fu existing in our daily life. In the first half, the book chronicles the major kung fu movies since the mid 19th century with abundant images. For the second half, the author also traveled far and wide across China for first-hand interviews and photographs of the practitioners of over 20 schools of kung fu. For many of them it was the first time to share their life stories, and together these stories construct a world of reality that once seemed so mysterious to the audience of the thriving kung fu movies.
