Description


Southern Silk Route is the historic route, which runs from China to Myanmar and ends up in Assam. The route has historical importance as it served as a major artery of ancient trade articles. The Southern Silk Route: Historical Links and Contemporary Convergences attempts to sketch out the historical dimensions of the route and shows the contemporary dynamics, both positive and negative. It poses the question how history can extend a lesson in contemporary contexts.
The book has two parts- theoretical articles on the route judging from a scholar's perspective on one hand and explorers' insight in the practical perspective on the other, thus making it really interesting both for the scholar and the lay reader.
