Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Shanghai Filmmaking: Crossing Borders, Connecting to the Globe, 1922-1938 presents the table of contents, a foreword, acknowledgements, a list of figures, charts and tables and a list of conventions and abbreviations. The book outlines the industrial environment of early Shanghai filmmaking. Empirical evidence debunks the ideologically laden story provided in Fazhan shi. Mingxing's history points to the serious efforts of its managers in the 1920s to establish a limited liability company and a 'vertically integrated' system of production, distribution and exhibition following the Hollywood industrial mode.

Keywords: Fazhan shi; Shanghai filmmaking
