Description

One of the earliest and most authoritative Western accounts of Islam in China – this is arguably the first English book on Chinese Muslims. Several photographs and details of inscriptions in this book have been of significant influence on Western study of Islam in China.

As an active missionary to China from a family of missionaries, Broomhall wrote with an authoritative familiarity of his subject. Beginning with the history of Islam in China, Broomhall explores the interactions between aspects of Chinese culture and Islamic religion with an eye towards the effect on evangelization.
