Marco Polo's famous book about his journey to China, written in 1298, continues to be a subject of considerable controversy. One recent book on the subject argues that Marco Polo never went to China at all, and other scholars have pointed out apparent mistakes and important omissions in Marco's writings, including his failure to mention the Great Wall, and his apparently erroneous description of the course of the Yellow River. This book re-examines Marco Polo's book. It argues convincingly that he did indeed go to China, and that the apparent errors and omissions are all explicable - for example, the Great Wall at this period was not in good repair and not very notable, and the course of the Yellow River, which changes significantly from time to time, was then exactly as described by Marco. The book concludes that Marco Polo's work is an accurate, important and useful source for an extraordinary period of Chinese history.
