Wave People: The Martial Arts and the American Imagination

By John Donohue, Ph.D.




Wave People: The Martial Arts and the American Imagination

An anthropological perspective on what Asian martial arts represent to Americans and why Americans choose to study them. The attraction goes far beyond the physical aspects of self-defense, and embraces the symbols associations of “warrior heros,” and the grasp of power and skills through mythical means, and a quest for a coherent world view.
