This book examines India-China interactions in the broader contexts of Asian and world history. By focusing on material exchanges, transmissions of knowledge and technologies, networks of exchange during the colonial period, and little-known facets of interactions between the Republic of India and the People’s Republic of China, it argues that the analysis of India-China connections must extend beyond the traditional frameworks of nation-states or bilateralism. Instead, it demonstrates that a wide canvas of space, people, objects, and timeframe is needed to fully comprehend the interactions between India and China in the past and during the contemporary period. Considering as well on the contributions of people and groups from beyond India and China, the book also explores the interactions between Indians and Chinese outside the Asian continent. The sources used in this analysis range from archives documents to Chinese dynastic histories and the diaries of Indian travelers.
