Drawing on the latest research and scholarship, this newly revised and updated edition of Religions of the Silk Road explores the majestically fabled cities and exotic peoples that make up the romantic notions of the colonial era while examining how cultural traditions also travelled to the people encounted on the Silk Road.

This book is a comprehensive look at the ebb and flow of religion in the groups and countries along the silk road. The book is very informative and the content it well organized. It isn't an exciting read (not an entertaining narrative) but it is dense with clear, pertinent information about the transmission of religious traditions of central/east asia.
