ANNOTATION:
For a generation adjusting painfully to the demands of a modern industrial and commercial society, Asia came to represent an alternative vision of the good life: aesthetically austere, socially aristocratic, and imbued with spirituality. This book addresses the inchoate yearnings of disaffected Westerners.
