This unique history of India-China relations has been written on the basis of author's original research and thorough knowledge of Chinese Buddhism in all its aspects. The work has long been out of print. It has now been brought out with a new look to suit the needs of both the old and new generation of Sinologists and students. All the Chinese words have been transliterated in to pinyin system of Romanization which in their French forms were inaccessible to the readers. Both qualitatively and quantitatively, it is the best of its kind. Written in lucid, simple and attractive style, it will satisfy the needs of both the general readers as well as the specialists. The young and budding scholars will find here enough food for thought and data for further study.
