A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This richly detailed narrative history of the Tibetan Empire in Central Asia from about A.D. 600 to 866 depicts the struggles of the great Tibetan, Turkic, Arab, and Chinese powers for dominance over the Silk Road lands that connected Europe and East Asia. Challenging the commonly held belief that East and West were largely isolated from each other until the discovery of sea routes to India and China, the book emphasizes the importance of overland contacts in the Early Middle Ages and elucidates Tibet's role in the conflict over Central Asia.

Critique:

"[The] author has succeeded in his task, thanks to his sound method of analysis and to his command of the languages of the relevant texts: Tibetan, Chinese, Arab, Turkic. Particularly the thorough and felicitous utilization of the Arab sources is one of the most pleasant features of the book." --Luciano Petech, Central Asiatic Journal

"A most impressive work by an excellent scholar." --Richard N. Frye, International Journal of Middle East Studies

"An absorbing and highly original narrative of imperial rivalries that is of particular interest to comparative historians." --Choice
