For years Ian Buruma has been compelled to investigate the question: what happens to Asian cultures when traditions of the village break down and are replaced by the complexities of the modern world?

His quest to answer this has taken him to eight countries, starting with Burma, a society which tried to seal itself off from the rest of the world, and ending with Japan, the land which became the world's theme park. Along the way, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea are revealed as never before - searching for their national identities and for meaning in the clash of cultures.
