Book Description:

Behind Hollywood's violent, sensationalized portrayal of the martial arts is an ancient, honored tradition. Practiced around the world in styles as different as Zulu stick fighting and India's Thang-Ta, the art of combat is part physical discipline, part strategy, and part dance.

About the Author:

Thomas A. Green is associate professor of anthropology at Texas A & M University, College Station, TX.
