In Monsoon Postcards, journalist David H. Mould, notebook in hand, traverses the Indian Ocean, from Madagascar through India and Bangladesh to Indonesia. He offers witty and insightful glimpses into countries linked by history, trade, religion, and a colonial legacy, exploring how they confront an array of contemporary challenges. It's an unpredictable journey on buses, bush taxis, auto-rickshaws and crowded ferries. Along the way, in markets, shops, roadside cafes and classrooms, he meets journalists, students, aid workers, cab drivers, and other everyday residents to learn how they view their past and future.
Much like its predecessor, Mould's Postcards from Stanland, Monsoon Postcards offers witty and insightful glimpses into countries linked by history, trade, migration, religion, and a colonial legacy. It explores how they confront the challenges of climate change, urban growth, economic development, land, water and natural resources, and national and ethnic identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An illuminating travelogue through Central Asia.... As a genial travel guide, Mould, an academic who doesn't write like an academic, shows how one should resist the temptations to stereotype a culture too easily and understand it too quickly."
"Mould is the ideal author to demystify the region and its people.... (An) accomplished tome that covers topics ranging from culture and politics to history, the environment, economics, and human rights....VERDICT: With a sense of humor, Mould's memoir will ... stimulate interest in this lesser-known region."
