Description About the author
This richly detailed narrative history of the Tibetan Empire in Central Asia from about A.D. 600 to 866 depicts the struggles of the great Tibetan, Turkic, Arab, and Chinese powers for dominance over the Silk Road lands that connected Europe and East Asia. Challenging the commonly held belief that Eas and West were largely isolated from each other until the discovery of sea routes to India and China, the book shows the importance of overland contacts between East and West in the Early Middle Ages and elucidates Tibet's role in the conflict over Central Asia.

Tibetan Empire in Central Asia, Christopher I. Beckwith, Princeton Universty Press, Paperback, 1987, 280 Pages, $34.95.
