Title Details
Buddha in the Machine by Williams, R. John
Buddha in the Machine: Art, Technology, and the Meeting of East and West
by Williams, R. John
 
In a dazzling work of synthesis, Williams examines Asian influences on book design and department store marketing, the commercial fiction of Jack London, the poetic technique of Ezra Pound, the popularity of Charlie Chan movies, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, and the design of high-tech gadgets. He demonstrates how, rather than retreating from modernity, writers, artists, and inventors have turned to traditional Eastern craftwork as a therapeutic means of living with -- but never abandoning -- Western technology.
