    Excellent - and thanks for reading in and offering your 'review'. I've added this to my list. Much appreciated.

    Have you read his previous effort "Martial Arts in the Modern World"? Looks interesting as well - ISBN 0275981533


    PS for those who think this will come up cheap used, remember that if it goes out of print used copies will end up being more, not less expensive. The chance that a 2 volume, $180 set will go through multiple printings seems low to me. Just my 2c, if it helps people who are on the fence.
