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
