Summary "A comparative study of the historical relations of the Timurid Empire (1370-1506) and Ming China (1368-1644) forms the subject-matter of the present book. Although they were not adjacent empires, the relationship between the two dynasties shows certain particularities that deserve special attention not only within the scholarship of Sino-Central Asian historical contacts, but also for the understanding the formation of pre-modern inter-state and intercultural relations through taking a comparative look at theories and approaches found in the secondary literature. This book, employing theory (building) and approach as its main analytical aspects, compares Western, Japanese and Chinese studies on early Timurid-Ming contacts and stresses the applicability of these studies to a broader historical context."
