Andrew Chittick is reinterpreting the history of the southern Chinese Jiankang Empire (second to sixth century C.E.) through the lenses of ethnicity, frontier studies, and political culture. His work places the rise of this empire in the larger context of Asian maritime trade, Buddhist politics and diplomacy, and comparative world empires.
