Description:
A whole new take on armchair travel for curious minds, who wonder what's happening where the West meets the rest. The answer, as intrepid journalist Doug Hendrie discovers on his extended travels to the furthest flung corners of the world, is a surprising set of unpredictable adaptions, each of which makes for fascinating reading. Meet the professional videogame superstars in South Korea, playing the Starcraft game the US invented and then abandoned.

Discover hardcore punks in Indonesia, rebelling against a far more totalitarian regime than Thatcher's ever was. Everywhere Hendrie goes, it's globalisation - but not as we know it. Part whirlwind world tour through surprising subcultures, part subtle sociological study, all immersive reportage with humour and warmth, AmalgaNations takes the reader across, Asia, Oceania and Africa to discover how people are adapting or repurposing 'global' cultures. The future is here. And it is one of hybrid lives.
