New Chinese Cinemas is both an important contribution to the ever-expanding body of English-language writing on Chinese film and a reasonably accurate marker of the relative "maturity" of the scholarship relating to each of the "national" variations under consideration here (People's Republic, Taiwan, Hong Kong). The subject matter is not precisely the newest Chinese cinemas - the wheels of academic publishing turn too slowly (and history's too quickly, it seems) to provide in book form a genuinely contemporaneous chronicle of developments in this area. Rather, the book's focus is Chinese film of the 1980s, with relatively discrete sections devoted to activities in the P.R.C. (four chapters) and in Taiwan and Hong Kong (a total of five chapters).
