Bruce Lee : Fighting Spirit

By Thomas, Bruce

Sidgwick & Jackson, 2006. Book. Very Good. Paperback. Clean nicely bound copy. Unmarked pages with light edgwear. Secure boxed packaging! Bruce Lee was a star in America but an icon in much of the rest of the world. Since the U.S. is the big enchilada in pop culture, Lee worked for years to become recognized here and to spread appreciation of the martial arts in a society that had a jaundiced, even bigoted view of those ancient disciplines. Thomas makes it abundantly clear that Lee was both an astonishing athlete and an engaging actor. Devotees of his movies and two TV shows, The Green Hornet and Longstreet, know that, of course. Thomas notes that Lee, as the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato, gave American audiences their first look at authentic martial arts. k2.
