The Central Asiatic Journal is devoted to the languages, literature, history and archaeology of Central Asia. The definition Central Asia is considered within its broadest limits, including also East Asian cultures (Mongolia, Manchuria, Tibet) on the basis of their relations with the Central Asian region.

This volume focusing on Tangut culture and language is based on the 15 papers presented at a colloquium held at SOAS, University of London, in April 2013. The contributors belong to the world’s leading Tangut specialists, and volume 57 of the Central Asiatic Journal thus represents the state of the art in Tangut studies.
