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
