If you have any queries, pleae don't hesitate to contact me by e-mail, 
fax or phone: +44 7970 506 326.  If this all sounds hideously 
expensive, I'm sorry.  Books are printed as orders are received with 
costs running at around 10,000 yen per set.  Please understand that it 
is a very specialised work in progress which has been developed over 
five years without funding.

As comments on the mailing list and the Richie review has indicated, 
this is not a comprehensive reference work to the history of Japanese 
cinema.  Over the 650 pages the two volumes do, however, include 
pretty much every films shown, known, or talked about outside Japan 
and a very wide range of work that hasn't been, with a strong emphasis 
given to contemporary film and independent cinema.
