The Historical Dictionary of Taiwan Cinema covers the history of Taiwan cinema during both the Japanese colonial period (1895–1945) and Chinese Nationalist period (1945–present). This is accomplished through a chronology, list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and more than a hundred cross-referenced entries on directors, producers, performers, films, film studios, and genres. The book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Taiwan cinema, as well as the social, political, financial, and creative intricacies of how at least one important national cinema developed.
