What if, in a dialog between the past and the present, between the living and the dead, between the real and the fictitious, innovative writers and fighters such as Bruce Lee, Alan Watts, Marshall McLuhan, Kwai Chang Caine, Carl Young, and Lao TzuMoreWhat if, in a dialog between the past and the present, between the living and the dead, between the real and the fictitious, innovative writers and fighters such as Bruce Lee, Alan Watts, Marshall McLuhan, Kwai Chang Caine, Carl Young, and Lao Tzu were brought back to life and transported to the present so they might raise an index finger, lean forward and whisper knowingly,“Oh, before I forget, just One Last Thing…”The contentious history of how Chinese philosophy and the martial arts emigrated to the West is a story that has been purposely shrouded in the mists of legend, impossible to authenticate without first-hand contact with the authors themselves.Thanks to a recent discovery of fragmented newspaper interviews, email snippets, court room transcripts and the surreptitious placing of a webcam in the homes of various sages during their lunch breaks, the story of how the arts moved West can at last be re-told in their own words.Fact, fiction, comedy, drama and fantasy all blend together in this new history where boundaries between people, places and times not only dissolve but reunite in the most unexpected of ways.Read about:* Yang Lu Chan on the origins of TaiChi and living inside The Village of the Chens (I am not a Number!)* Working With the Little Dragon: A round table debate on how it was to star alongside Bruce Lee* Alan Watts nips back in the TARDIS to lecture the Shaolin Priests on how to update their training methods* Kwai Chang Caine talks about the importance of Flutes, Floppy Hats and Fighting on the TV set of KungFu* Lao Tzu explains the Origins of Everything and Nothing* Be Like Water - a copyright case in the High Court with Lao Tzu, AlanWatts and BruceLeeAnd lots, lots more in this unique history of Eastern philosophy and martial arts from the author of The Manual of Bean Curd Boxing.
