China and the Silk Roads (ca. 100 BCE to 1800 CE). Role and Content of Its Historical Access to the Outside World
China and the Silk Roads (ca. 100 BCE to 1800 CE). investigates China’s relations to the outside world between ca. 100 BCE and 1800 CE. In contrast to most histories of the Silk Roads, the focus of this book clearly lies on the maritime Silk Road and on the period between Tang and high Qing, selecting aspects that have so far been neglected in research on the history of China’s relations with the outside world.
