    DescriptionThe importance of this book lies in conclusively establishing the linkages between, on the one hand, the transmission of Buddhism from India to China, and, on the other, the trade in commercial items that went on between these two countries.

    Review quote
    "Liu has used a rich variety of literary, archaeological, epigraphic, and numismatic sources from both India and China. She has produced a solid study of luxury trade and of the speread of Buddhism to China. She writes in a straightforward manner. Her judgments are well balanced, and she throws more light than heat on the topic. Liu is a unique scholar who needs to be profusely commended for her worthy contribution to an important and neglected subject."--American Historical Review
