Yan Chen - Translated by Haitao Mu; Caiyun Gao and Chen Chen
Lexington Books, 2020


This translation of collected articles by Yan Chen (1916–2016) examines the role of the Maritime Silk Road in the formation of world civilizations. Analyzing the Maritime Silk Road’s political, economic, cultural, and technological influence, Chen argues that this expansive trade network was vital to the spread of traditional Chinese culture.
