From Easter Island to the Forbidden City, to traditional stopovers such as The Great Wall of China and the Egyptian Pyramids, Cruickshank admires with a particular fondness for architectural and engineering feats, while more alarmingly, documents the onset of globalisation and the threat it poses to ancient ways of life.
