Bluestein's Research of Martial Arts - a monumental treatise of epic proportions on martial arts theory, practice and culture. 418 pages, 220,000 words.
Most of the book is dedicated to Chinese martial arts (especially the Internal styles), but a lot is said and written of Okinawan arts (both Karate and Kobudo) and Japanese martial arts (Aikido in particular), as well as their related culture and history. I believe you too would enjoy its contents. Also included are many lengthy interview with distinguished masters of various styles.
More information about the book, as well as 72 whole pages of sample chapters, are available at: http://www.researchofmartialarts.com
