This sumptuous volume published by the Asia Society and Hudson Hills Press recounts how the mission of the Asia Society was born out of the Rockefeller family's interest in and involvement with Asia, and explains how the commitment to that mission has deepened over the past 50 years. In addition to an essay on the Rockefeller family's century-long engagement with Asia, the text includes essays by Rockefeller family members, the curator of the family's collection, several former presidents and the current president of the Asia Society. The book contains 117 color plates of objects in the collection, and color and b&w photos that help tell the story. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
