    In the history of the modern world, there have been few characters more sadistic, sinister, and deeply demented as Baron Ungern-Sternberg. An anti-Semitic fanatic with a penchant for Eastern mysticism and a hatred of communists, Baron Ungern-Sternberg took over Mongolia in 1920 with a ragtag force of White Russians, Siberians, Japanese, and native Mongolians.

    David says: "Truth is stranger than fiction"
    "Not a scholary well researched work... Irritating"
    Overall

    Nthing I would not have already learnt by reading "setting the east ablaze" by Peter Hopkirk... Pompous

    Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman.

    Marius says: "Al Gore nightmare meets Blade Runner."
    "Sounds like exotic journalism from late XIX c"
    Overall

    Was too tedious to listen to, full of cliches, To the point where I stopped listening half way through the first part of the recording. Not credible to someone who likes and empathizes with this part of the world. Obviously written by a tourist. Should be entertaining nevertheless for whom doesn't mind the inanities of the environment.
