Summary
It's globalised culture – but not as we know it.Fuelled by curiosity and wanderlust, reporter Doug Hendrie travels to the edges of our world to find the most unexpected – and bizarre – examples of cultural mash-ups, from the StarCraft videogame superstars of South Korea to the Clash-loving punks of Indonesia.A whirlwind world tour through surprising subcultures told with subtle humour, AmalgaNations picks up where Louis Theroux leaves off.'We're used to carting our travel discoveries home, but as Doug Hendrie proves it's a two-way trade. Particularly when high tech, sex and style make the most unexpected converts.' Tony Wheeler'Travelling isn't just about where you go but what you do when you get there: where you look, what you see, who you meet and the questions you ask. Hendrie gets all this right and more in a book which doesn't just take us places but into what feels like the future - a future that is here, now.' Sophie Cunningham'Hendrie challenges stereotypes, celebrates differences and shows that, at base, what makes us all human is our ability to creatively adapt to and engage with our increasingly interconnected world.' Damien Kingsbury'Doug Hendrie's personal and insightful account of the connections between the West and other cultures exposes hidden truths about our global village.' Jacqueline Kent'From Ghana's sorcery, scams and soft- porn film industry to gay power in the Philippines ... Welcome to Doug Hendrie's world tour of rebirthed cultures.' Christopher Kremmer
