An Eye for the Dragon:
Southeast Asia Observed, 1954-1970
Drawing on his experience as a journalist who was based in Singapore for most of his career, Bloodworth serves up a delightful and insightful introduction to a range of countries throughout the region. All of them, with the exception of Thailand, were beginning to find their feet, and some flex their muscles, after colonial rule. They were far more turbulent times than now, but the author brings us down to earth. 414 pages. There are a glossary, a chronology, a bibliography and an index.
