Overview
Michael Pollak has sniffed out every available clue on Chinese Jews and his research is solid and well documented. This book tells the story of the bands of Jews who wandered along the Silk Roads across central Asia to settle in China centuries ago. It gives an account of their lives and culture, and an insight into both Chinese and Jewish history. Beyond the confines of Jewish history, this saga sheds much light on China's past and especially its treatment of minorities.
