A challenging and possibly controversial work, Saving Face, Losing Face, In Your Face will define 'the West', and discuss in some detail how and why people from Europe have influenced the history and culture of almost every country on earth, and explain why the 'Western heart, mind and soul' is so dominant in so many facets of human endeavour.



People of British and European descent have clearly recognised the value of understanding the various and distinctive societies and cultures that constitute Asia. Saving Face, Losing Face, In your Face turns the coin over, and explains that the richness and complexity of European society is no accident. It is rather the result of nearly 5000 years of constant religious, political, philosophical and scientific development.

Many Asians experience European culture only through the offerings of Hollywood and other popular Western media. Saving Face, Losing Face, In your Face provides a deeper analysis of Western thinking.
