Sinopsis: An immensely readable tour de force, full of pertinently sophisticated impressions and observations about the mélange of people and nations of Southeast Asia...Bloodworth says that he has tried to let the contemporary drama of Southeast Asia emerge naturally from the beliefs, customs, prejudices and traditional patterns of thought of the principal players--the people themselves. Bloodworth is at his best in judging the errors of the ex-colonial West in thrusting its own style of democracy upon the ill-prepared but often wiser East. He has obviously enjoyed his own experience in learning how important family and fortune-tellers, religion and racketeers, money and matriarchs are in the Asian community. AN EYE FOR THE DRAGON serves as a sensitive and reflective guide for those who want to know more about the riches of Southeast Asia than the daily headlines have told them. --The N. Y. Times
