Scattered across the great tapestry of the Asian and Pacific region are different peoples, landscapes, climates, customs, and religions. In it are countries that are huge, such as the People's Republic of China and India, and those that are tiny islands in the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Some boast dynamic economies. Others are still poor. And yet, there is a certain homogeneity about the region. As the Japanese writer and philosopher Kakuzo Okakura wrote, "Asia is one." The very birth and existence of the Bank symbolize that spirit of oneness and sense of common identity. In celebration of the Asian Development Bank's 30th anniversary, this beautiful volume of over 80 photographs serves as a reminder of the immensity, variety, and beauty of Asia, and the fragility of her ecosystems - from such images it is hoped strength and inspiration can be drawn for the work that lies ahead.
