Forlagets beskrivelse
?These accounts are full of fascination and wonder? [and] continue the contribution this excellent series is making towards integrating classics of Arabic into the global canon.?
?Times Literary Supplement

The ninth and tenth centuries witnessed the establishment of a substantial network of maritime trade across the Indian Ocean, providing the real-life background to the Sinbad tales. An exceptional exemplar of Arabic travel writing, Accounts of China and India is a compilation of reports and anecdotes about the lands and peoples of this diverse territory, from the Somali headlands of Africa to the far eastern shores of China and Korea. ?

Traveling eastward, we discover a vivid human landscape?from Chinese society to Hindu religious practices?as well as a colorful range of natural wilderness?from flying fish to Tibetan musk-deer and Sri Lankan gems. The juxtaposed accounts create a kaleidoscope of a world not unlike our own, a world on the road to globalization. In its ports, we find a priceless cargo of information. Here are the first foreign descriptions of tea and porcelain, a panorama of unusual social practices, cannibal islands, and Indian holy men?a marvelous, mundane world, contained in the compass of a novella.
