Editorial Reviews


'Levi has shown that the Indian trading diaspora [...] played a vital role in the economic and ultimately political history of the region. It is essential reading for anyone interested in that history.' Peter B. Golden, Central Eurasian Studies Review, 2005. 'This is a superb account of an important theme...based on extremely wide reading of secondary sources and travelers'accounts, as well as on archival sources...His book should put to rest the hoary old idea that the Silk Roads in general, and Central Asia is particular, dwindled to insignificance from the fifteenth century...It is [a] fine book on a very important theme.' David Christian, Journal of World History, 2003.
