In a fascinating cross-cultural study, Patrick Zachmann worked for over ten years on this book. It is a document of Chinese culture, mainland and abroad, revealing the tremendous power and complex mystery which endures at the heart of it. Zachmann travels to Europe, the United States, China, Tahiti, Hong Kong, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, and Macao. Accompanying Zachmann's brilliant photographs is a narrative in which he describes his relationship with the elusive "W". "W" is a Chinese man who is instrumental in helping him to understand the truth of each situation--interpreting, explaining, and guiding Zachmann, the "long nose", through his world. The book is a thoroughly engaging and powerful document of an unbelievably resilient culture.
