About the Author

Wong How Man was honoured in 2002 by Time Magazine among their selection of 25 Asian Heroes as China's most accomplished living explorerA". He is Founder and President of the China Exploration and Research Society, a pre-eminent non-profit organization specializing in exploration, research, conservation and education in remote China. Prior to starting his own organization in 1986 in the U.S., Wong had led six major expeditions for the National Geographic. At the magazine, he was an explorer/writer/photographer and credited with the discovery of a new source of the Yangtze River. His writing for the National Geographic was nominated for the Overseas Press Club Award of America. In more recent years, he also defined the sources of the Mekong and the Yellow River. Wong has authored over a dozen books. Among these, 'From Manchuria to Tibet' (1998) won the prestigious Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Gold Award. Adel Awni Dajani was educated at Eton College and London University, then at Middle Temple Inns of Court. Whilst still a student in 1974 he went on one of the first organised student trips to China and began for the first time a long term relationship with that country, at the same time becoming fascinated by the extent of China's Muslim heritage. Dajani and Wong in 1984 together undertook a programme of fieldwork and research to further their understanding of Islam and China. Since then the history of encounters between Islam and other cultures has captivated Dajani who now lives between Tripoli and Tunis.
