Tansen Sen

Review


‘Tansen Sen is unquestionably the world’s leading historian of Sino-Indian connections. In this pioneering work, he situates his formidable knowledge within the framework of world history, revealing how central the relationship has been for both Asia and the wider world.’
—PRASENJIT DUARA, Duke University

‘Tansen Sen provides a deeply engaging, wide-ranging, and richly detailed history of the peoples, technologies, ideas, and commodities that have connected China, India, and the wider world from ancient times to the present. Now that China’s “One Belt One Road” is all the rage, it is fascinating to learn how these ancient spaces of mobility became assets for contending empires and objects of conflicting national interests that formed a diplomatic scaffolding for transnational politics.’
—DAVID LUDDEN, New York University

‘Tansen Sen has the remarkable knowledge and skills to be considered a historian of both China and India. In this groundbreaking study, his facility with the languages of both cultures enables him to provide a sophisticated history and analysis of their exchanges of products, philosophical and religious views, and scientific ideas. Noting that the relations between the two cultures need to be perceived in a broader context, Sen describes the influences of their interactions on other Asian civilizations. He concludes with an analysis of their relations in the modern world.’
—MORRIS ROSSABI, author of Khubilai Khan: His Life and Times
