Wood, Frances: DID MARCO POLO GO TO CHINA? London, 1995. 182 pp. Map. Notes, bibliography, index. 22x14 cm. Paper.
Frances Wood questions whether Marco Polo ever reached the country he so vividly describes. Why, within the romantic and detailed account, is there no mention of such fundamental parts of Chinese life as tea or footbinding or even the Great Wall? A lucid and very readable study.
