The Southern Silk Route is the historic route which running from China to Myanmar and ends up in Assam. The route has immense historical importance as it served as a major artery of ancient trade articles. The Southern Silk Route: Historical Links and Contemporary Convergences attempts to give an outline of the historical dimensions of the route and shows the contemporary dynamics, both positive and negative. It poses the question how history can extend a lesson in contemporary contexts.


The book has two parts- theoretical articles on the route judging from a scholar’s perspective on the one hand and explorers’ insight in the practical perspective on the other, and will be of interest to scholars and lay reader alike.
