"An indispensable and welcome addition to Intellect's World Film Locations series, World Film Locations: Shanghai is a lively and complete handbook that enables the cinephile and the broad culturally cultivated reader-traveler to apprehend the spell and complications of Shanghai through the vibrant lens of film. . . . It is a readable, interactive, and up-to-date book; it is not an ordinary book to be deployed in one single, conventional setting. Readers will have to decide for themselves the best usage of the book, whether as a travel guide, an encyclopedia, or an introductory reading for certain courses on city and cinema."– "China Review International"
