Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Silk Road is not a place, but a journey—a route from the edges of the Mediterranean to the central plains of China, through high mountains and inhospitable deserts. For thousands of years its history has been a traveler's history, of encounters in desert towns, snowbound passes, and nameless forts. It was the conduit that first brought Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam into China.

An Armchair Traveller's History of the Silk Road takes a comprehensive and illuminating look at the rich history of the dynamic and little known region through which the Silk Road passes. Paying particular attention to the historical sites that feature on any visitor's itinerary, Jonathan Clements give special emphasis to the writings and reactions of travelers through the centuries.

Synopsis:
