From the Publisher"This brief but tightly packed book is a wonderful counterweight to romanticized notions of the so-called Silk Road . . . Foltz masterfully deals with disparate histories from one point of the compass to its seeming opposite, while weaving a wonderfully lucid story of merchants, pilgrims, and missionaries."
—The Jourbanal of Asian History
"Professor Foltz excels at concise explanations of the development of the many religions scattered throughout the central Asian area of the Silk Road . . . Throughout this excellent book Professor Foltz makes clear the importance of trade and cultural exchanges in the unfolding of history."
—Jourbanal of World History
"Foltz takes us on an instructive jourbaney through time and space, revealing the fluidity of barriers, geographical and otherwise, on the historical trail and bypaths of the 'Silk Road,' which stretches from China in the East and across Central Asia to the shores of the Mediterranean in the West."
—History: Reviews of New Books
". . . an absolute gem . . . well researched and well written, it brings together a huge amount of information in an attractive package."
—Jerry H. Bentley, Editor, Jourbanal of World History
