In 2012, the world arrived in London for the Olympics...and Ann
Morgan went out to meet it. She read her way around all the globe's
196 independent countries (plus one extra), sampling one book from
every nation. It wasn't easy. Many languages have next to nothing
translated into English; there are tiny, tucked-away places where
very little is written down at all; some governments don't like to
let works of art leak out to corrupt Westerners. Her literary
adventures shed light on the issues that affect us all: personal,
political, national and global. Using her quest as a starting
point, this book explores questions such as: What is cultural
heritage? How do we define national identity? Is it possible to
overcome censorship and propaganda? And how can we celebrate,
challenge and change our remarkable world?
