A collection of some of the most recent research on Chinese glass, a little known topic. The volume includes three studies (by Cecilia Braghin, An Jiayao and Shen Hsueh-man,) which focus on glass finds of three periods: the Warring States and Han (475 B.C.-A.D. 9), the Wei, Jin and Northern and Southern Dynasties (A.D. 386-589), and the Tang and Northern Song (A.D. 618-1127). These essays outline the major categories of glass artefacts characteristic of each period and reconstruct some of the social and religious contexts in which they were used.
