India and China: Interactions through Buddhism and Diplomacy - A Collection of Essays by Professor Prabodh Chandra Bagchi

by Bangwei Wang

Underscoring the unique and multifaceted interactions between ancient India and ancient China, India and China: Interactions through Buddhism and Diplomacy collates the classic works of the pre-eminent Indian scholar of Chinese history and Buddhism, Professor Prabodh Chandra Bagchi (1898–1956). The collected essays of this volume range from those that examine the ancient names for India in Chinese sources, to those that investigate Indian influences on Chinese thought, analyse the beginnings of Buddhism in China, and explore the letters exchanged between the Chinese monk Xuanzang (Hiuan-Tsang) and his Indian friends. Also included are a variety of Bagchi’s short articles, as well as English translations of a number of his Bengali essays. Further insight into Bagchi’s work is provided by the renowned scholars, Suniti Kumar Chatterji and Akira Yuyama, who discuss respectively Bagchi’s contribution to Chinese studies in India and to the wider understanding of India-China interactions. With its wide-ranging and thorough investigation of both Sino-Indian Buddhism and cultural relations between the two ancient civilizations, India and China: Interactions through Buddhism and Diplomacy will be an invaluable text for anyone interested in cross-cultural exchanges between India and China, Buddhism, or Asian history.
