    Until now, popular novelist James Clavell has not been recognized for his literary achievements and his contributions to cross-cultural understanding. This critical study seeks to rectify that omission. It shows how Clavell's depiction of cross-cultural encounters of Westerners with the East paves the way for modern multicultural studies. His novels about culture clash help Western readers see. I first had the chance to discover James Clavell by reading his epic novel 'Shogun'. The 2nd book in the Asian sage, 'Tai-Pan' continues on the same high note of epic storytelling, interesting characters and interesting dialogue/5(57).

If you could sum up King Rat in three words, what would they be? This is the first in clavells Asian series if read, as I am doing, in order of publication. A great read.
