Nepal and China: A Historical Perspective

 
Niranjan Bhattarai (Author)
Synopsis

The volume examines the 200-year-old relationship between Nepal and China—since the spread of the Buddhist doctrine to China. It deals with the influence of each country on the other since ancient times on various fronts—political, social, cultural, religious and economic. It discusses ties between the countries under different dynasties, official Chinese missions to Nepal, accounts of travellers like Hsuan Tsang on Nepal, and Nepali influence on Chinese religious arts and architecture in the past. It also takes up periods of tensions that have existed in the past. With numerous illustrations, the informative work highlights the renewal of traditional relations on good terms between the countries since the 1950s and the developments in their ties over the years. Useful appendices give the text of treaties and agreements signed between the nations.
