This fascinating book on the history of Chinese Jews reads like an adventure story, crisscrossing geographic locations & transcending ages. Michael Pollak has sniffed out every available clue on the Chinese Jews: his research is solid & well documented. Beyond the confines of Jewish history, this saga sheds much light on China's past & especially its treatment of minorities. This new edition includes a new preface that assembles & evaluates the data that have come to the fore with regard to the once flourishing Jewish communities of old China, particularly that of Kaifeng, in the years since 1979, when the original manuscript of this book was completed; & to correct a number of errors. Numerous illustrations.
