Leading You into Unexplored Territory
David Clive Price has been at various times a wine and olive farmer in Italy, a Renaissance scholar, a speechwriter for one of the world's leading banks, an adviser to Asian multinationals, and an explorer of the unknown corners of South Korea, Japan, China and Myanmar (Burma).
He has written books on rural Italy ("The Other Italy"), music and Catholic conspiracies in Elizabethan England, Asian beliefs and mysticism ("Buddhism In The Daily Life of Asia"), hidden love and corruption in the business world of London and Hong Kong ("Chinese Walls"), traditional and contemporary Korea ("Phoenix Rising: A Journey Through South Korea") the secret world "Within the Forbidden City" of imperial Beijing, and now the subculture of 1980s New York. 'I am attracted by other cultures and what lies beyond. I have been telling stories ever since I was a child, setting off into the woods alone and reciting poems or Shakespeare to the swaying trees.'
