Shannon McCarren Dr. Bisson Life Along the Silk Road 3/11/14 Life Along the Silk Road written by Susan Whitfield is a wonderfully rendered rendition of historical Chinese events during 750-1000 AD taking place on the Silk Road. Throughout the duration of the book Whitfield incorporates multiple characters that are very different because of physical and social reasons but all are impacted by the Silk Road in some way. The author, Susan Whitfield wrote the book and picked the setting because she wanted to bring light to a time period that is important in Chinese history but is rarely addressed. She also wrote the book because there were recent developments about what happened during that time period making it a complicated time in history so she looked to clarify that time period for the readers. Her way of clarification was personifying the history so that it would be entertaining as well as factual, which she wanted to do because she wanted history to not just be numbers and places, but to be able to have the readers understanding what life was like along the silk road.

Through research it is noticeable that the Jews had important contributions in the Silk Road in many areas such as the business activities, and also spread the Jewish religion and culture throughout the areas involved. When researching many of the sources and materials point the Chinese as the key influence of the Silk Road, and this can be argued because it was named after the silk coming out of china which was extremely profitable, and desired. Through research it was also pointed out specifically in Trudy Ring, Robert M. Salkin, Noelle Watson, Sharon La Boda, & Paul Schellinger who showed that while it was the Chinese merchants that carry silk and other items from the east, “they sold or bartered their goods to the Asian middlemen who in turn traded the merchandise to Persians, Syrians, and Jewish merchants” which then sold the good throughout the Roman Empire. This is the
