"The encyclopedia offers notably in-depth coverage of areas that have often been neglected in similar works, including martial arts of European, African, South American and Oceanean origins." - The Bartitsu Society "Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice "Containing more than 120 entries, Martial Arts of the World aims to be the most comprehensive work on the subject of martial arts. Editors Green, a professor of anthropology, and Svinth, editor of several martial arts and sciences journals, have done a noteworthy job in reaching that goal. . . . With the growing popularity of mixed martial arts fighting and the continuing presence of martial arts in Hollywood, this title could fill a gap in many library collections. . . . Scholars will find plenty here to fit their needs and spur further research." - Booklist Online "Martial Arts of the World is, hands down, one of the most thoroughly researched reference books ever published in this genre. . . . It should grace the bookshelves of veteran black belts and serious martial arts researchers and practitioners." - MA Success
