Visionary Journeys: Travel Writings from Early Medieval and Nineteenth-Century China
by Xiaofei Tian
This book explores two important moments of dislocation in Chinese history, the early medieval period (317--589 CE) and the nineteenth century. Tian juxtaposes a rich array of materials from these two periods in comparative study, linking these historical moments in their unprecedented interactions, and intense fascination, with foreign cultures.
