Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of terms and concepts that are relevant to Zheng He's voyages and China's relations with the Indian Ocean world. The book on Zheng He's epic voyages is of importance not only for Chinese, Asian and African history but also for world history as a whole. It provides a different perspective from the conventional Eurocentric emphasis on the "Voyages of Discovery", and reveals remarkable Chinese achievements in oceanic navigation before "the Age of Exploration" started in Europe.

Keywords: China; Indian Ocean world; Zheng He
