There is no greater misunderstanding than to think that one travels alone. On this epic journey through China, Cambodia and Vietnam, political columnist Carsten Jensen travels in order to find out about the Tiananmen Square massacre, the killing fields of Cambodia and the operations of Khmer Rouge. His constant questioning makes him friends and enemies, but he never settles for half-truths.
With a profound sense of the sweep of history, Jensen contemplates the rise and fall of empires and cultures, the birth of new generations, new societies, and indeed a whole new world.
