Overview for Chinese Sources of South Asian History in Translation : Data for Study of India-China Relations Through Ages, (Volume II: Chinese Sources on Ancient Indian Geography)

This is the second volume of the series Chinese Sources of South Asian History in Translation. Entitled "Chinese Sources on Ancient Indian Geography", it comprises two texts on historical geography. The author has translated and annotated exhaustively the latest collated versions of the texts which will help the students of ancient Indian history and geography in exploring some of the hitherto unexplored domains of ancient India. The first work, Kang Tai's notices on Foreign Countries during the Wu Dynasty (AD 220-280) is a collated text of all available notices that go in the names of Kang Tai and other envoys and travellers whose writings are no more extant but are scattered in other collectanea. Collected over a number of years they give a coherent idea about the all-sea route passing through the Malacca straits touching Ge-Ying and Jia-na-Tiao (Ganadvipa), and reaching the Eastern and Southern India and may be the Asia Minor (Daqin). The second work, The Commentary on the Water Classic (5-6 cent. A.D.) does not only record the geography of Central Asia, but also acquaints us with profuse information on the countries nearby, and India, Afghanistan and other areas outside China. The author shows knowledge of many Indian cities of North, South and Eastern India, and gives the impression that to the Chinese the entire Indian continent constituted one geographical and political concept. Both the works are important additions to the libraries of bibliophiles and will prove to be sine qua non for the Indian orientalists researching for data on our past.
