The Chinese Pakua: An Expose is the most exhaustive study ever attempted on the evolution of the enigmatic Chinese Pakua. For the uninitiated, the mystical Pakua is the ubiquitous object that hangs over the doors of Chinese households. It is a subject matter that has fascinated both Oriental and Occidental scholars for a very long time and is written both for the layman and the scholar who seek to comprehend its myriad secrets. It is a new and fresh approach towards the rediscovery of the multilayered significance of the Pakua.

It opens the lid to a vast treasure trove of knowledge and mysteries, of a rich, wonderful and enduring culture which has withstood the test of time. The Pakua's multiple layers of intricacies are studied in relation to the origins of ancient Chinese history and culture. It encourages Chinese everywhere, from the quaint Chinatowns that stretch across the Western world to Asia, to explore and rediscover their roots and see themselves in a newer light.
