In September 1838 a storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and the Ibis, a ship carrying a consignment of convicts and indentured labourers from Calcutta to Mauritius, is caught up in the whirlwind. When the seas settle, five men have disappeared—two lascars, two convicts and one of the passengers. Did the same storm upend the fortunes of those aboard the Anahita, an opium carrier heading towards Canton? And what fate befell those aboard the Redruth, a sturdy two-masted brig heading East out of Cornwall? Was it the storm that altered their course or were the destinies of these passengers at the ...

Chinese Sculpture: A Great Tradition

ISBN: 1932476288

Archaeological discoveries over the last fifty years have revolutionised knowledge about Chinese sculpture, revealing the length and strength of a hitherto unsuspected tradition stretching back to prehistoric times. This tradition was concerned with the powers of statuary. Unwritten, it was based on beliefs shared by all classes on the nature of the cosmos, the importance of maintaining contact with the ancestors and the idea that images contain power to influence events in the seen and unseen worlds. With many previously unpublished photographs, the book traces the history of Chinese sculptu... View more info

The Unknown Hsuan-tsang

By: D. Devahuti (ed.)

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Oxford University Press: 2006

Edition: First Paperback Edition

Seller ID: 023455

ISBN: 0195683498

Condition: New


This book fills up a significant gap about the information available on the life of the illustrious Buddhist scholar, Hsuan-tsang, who visited India in the seventh century AD. While his experiences and observations from these travels are well documented and easily accessible to the English-speaking world, there is a silence on the years that followed his return to China in AD 645. Works that translated Chinese and Uigur texts on the life of Hsuan-tsang into German and French were in print as early as the 1850s, but have not been available to a wider audience. This book brings together a select... View more info

The People’s Republic of China celebrated its 60th anniversary on 1 October 2009. December 2008 marked 30 years since the Chinese Communist Party’s decision to launch ‘market reforms’. The breathtakingly rapid economic growth witnessed after 1978 has attracted worldwide attention. But the condition of more than 350 million workers is abysmal, especially that of the migrants among them. The stagnation of peasant incomes had fuelled a huge, historically unprecedented migration into the cities—over the past 25 years, some 150-200 million persons, including women, migrated from the count...

China as we know is a great civilization and Xuanzang's (who is popularly known as Hsüan-tsang) visit to India was a great event. The noted Chinese traveler and Buddhist pilgrim, Xuanzang, reached India in AD 630, having undertaken an arduous journey across Central Asia. A Chinese emperor called him "the jewel of the empire." Nearly fourteen years of his life (from AD 630 to AD 644) were spent visiting Buddhist temples and monasteries, cities, and places of interest in the Indian subcontinent. He was a keen observer of men and affairs. Apart from being a devout monk, he has left behin... View more info
