This book is a rapid-fire survey of Central Asian cultural exchange from Alexander to Tamerlane. The core idea is that trade is the backbone of cultural exchange. The result is mostly that Islam came to dominate in Central Asia because Muslims dominated in trade. Somehow Buddhism dominated in e.g. Mongolia... hmm, were Buddhists expert traders too? Or was Kublai Khan's Buddhist advisor particularly persuasive?

Anyway the central argument of the book is interesting and somewhat useful. At least it provides some glue to hold the book together. But for me... I am a total amateur in this realms, but - OK, go get the CD in the Secret Museum of Mankind series, the CD dedicated to Central Asian music, compiled from old 78 rpm disks, from like the 1920s and 1930s. If you weren't fascinated with Central Asia before, surely you will be after listening! Or maybe I had some not-too-long-ago incarnation in Central Asia, who knows. Anyway, this book is chock full of fantastic tidbits, amazing little nuggets about ancient cities etc. There are dozens of historical fiction novels that could be seeded from sentences in this book!

It's got a good bibliography too, so wherever you might want to dig in, there is at least a starting point provided. Nothing about this book is comprehensive. It's a grand appetizer though! ( )

A bit too scattered to get a decent overview of any one place or time. But doing justice to such a broad topic would have taken 500 pages. Not a good primer, but piqued my interest to read on into more specialized studies.
