Book Description Oxford University Press, Oxford - New York, 2001. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Good. ISBN: 0-19-280211-9, As is - First endpaper has been partially torn away; some turning wear to the rear hinge, the spine is creased. Text is clean. 'The Silk Road, which linked imperial Rome and distant China, was once the greatest thoroughfare on earth. Along it travelled precious cargoes of silk, gold, and ivory, as well as revolutionary new ideas. Its oasis towns blossomed into thriving centres of Buddhist art and learning. In time it began to decline. The traffic slowed, the merchants left, and finally its towns vanished beneath the desert sands to be forgotten for a thousand years. But legends grew up of lost cities filled with treasures and guarded by demons. In the early years of the last century, foreign explorers began to investigate . . . Huge wall paintings, sculptures, and priceless manuscripts were carried away, literally by the ton, and are today scattered through the museums of a dozen countries. [The author] tells the story of the intrepid men who, at great personal risk, led these long-range archaeological raids, incurring the undying wrath of the Chinese.' 274 pages.
