CHOICE reviews A Critical Handbook of Japanese Film Directors

We love libraries, we love librarians, and we love library media. So we're especially happy about CHOICE's recent, very positive review of Alexander Jacoby's new book, A Critical Handbook of Japanese Film Directors. N. A. Baker of Earlham College writes:

This useful volume offers a critical overview and filmography of over 150 Japanese directors from the silent era to the present, excluding anime....[It] ought to please both scholars in search of a handy (and unique) reference title, and more casual Japanese film enthusiasts seeking information....Recommended.
