Details

East Asian Screen Industries provides a guide to the film industries of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China. The authors show how local cultural production has responded to global trends, especially those of American media, focusing on the effects of widespread deregulation and China's accession to the World Trade Organisation. They use case study examples to demonstrate how each national screen industry has negotiated the crises of the 1990's to re-emerge as a flexible industrial and cultural force, able to respond vigorously to strenuous challenges in an age of global capitalism.
