Chinese Name: 占城
This term is used to translate the Chinese Zhan-cheng, which is literally "the city of the Zhan (=Cham)". This is the term used by the Chinese to refer to the Cham polity/ies located in what is today central and southern Vietnam. A major study incorporating Chinese sources has been done by Maspero (1928). For other studies against which the MSL references can be compared, see Majumdar (1927) and Momoki (1992), and the diverse works noted in Lafont and Po Dharma (1989). For information on further Chinese sources relating to this polity, see Chen, Xie and Lu (1986; 277-79).
