Asian Horizons: Giuseppe Tuccis Buddhist, Indian, Himalayan and Central Asian Studies


Asian Horizons: 
Giuseppe Tucci's Buddhist, Indian, Himalayan and Central Asian Studies

Edited by Angelo Andrea Di Castro and David Templeman

Asian Horizons is published in honour of the great scholar of Asia, Professor Giuseppe Tucci (1894–1984). Through the work of present-day scholars, both senior and emerging, this volume represents their efforts to maintain the impetus of the profound legacy Tucci left. Renowned to this day as a founding scholar in an extraordinarily wide variety of disciplines, as well as being an explorer of hitherto largely unknown lands, such as Tibet, Tucci gained a deep knowledge of Asia through a familiarity with its people, places and literature. His contribution to modern scholarship is nothing less than remarkable. The volume reflects the broad variety of topics in which Tucci himself displayed deep interest and serves as an homage to his work.
