"The martial arts novel is one of the most distinctive and widely read forms of modern Chinese fiction. It is popular not only within Chinese-language communities but in translation throughout East Asia and in cinematic and other adaptations throughout the world. In Paper Swordsmen, John Christopher Hamm offers the first in-depth English-language study of this influential genre, focusing on the work of its undisputed twentieth-century master, Jin Yong." "Paper Swordsmen will be welcomed by students of Chinese literature, cultural studies, history, political science, anthropology, and comparative literature - as well as fans of martial arts fiction with an interest in the wider implications of the "Jin Yong phenomenon.""--Jacket.
