The quality of art books ranges from poor to excellent. In this case, we have one that fulfills all most important requirements. For one, although some snobs describe it as "pretty pictures', the reproductions are accurate, and their size is good. I consider a very important quality for a art book to present well sized, good quality reproductions. Although this is not a treatise about the subject (and I don't believe it should be), the texts are very accurate, while at the same time they are short and concise. This is what a book should provide, as opposed to being the space to host infinite, boring, and cryptic prolusions by some scholar. Last but not least, the structure is very good. Overall, a very good book.

Deftly compiled by a team of imminent scholars, A Passion For Asia: The Rockefeller Legacy is an in-depth, informative study of the Rockefeller family's strong dedication to providing Americans with an understanding and appreciation for Asian art, politics, history, society and culture. Introducing the reader to the intricate collection of Asian art and culturally influenced decor, A Passion For Asia: The Rockefeller Legacy elaborates on the actual Asian culture itself, as well as detailed essays and writings on the actual art itself. A Passion For Asia: The Rockefeller Legacy has been presented on the fiftieth-year anniversary of the founding of the Asia society, and for that reason, is very strongly recommended to all readers seeking a better understanding of the Asian perspective of art, culture, politics and ethics, as well as those who are engaged in the study of general Asian society.
