Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference articles and books, literary and scholarly works of later Han that are mentioned in the book A Biographical Dictionary of Later Han to the Three Kingdoms (23-220 AD). The lands and people south of the Yangzi played little part in the civil war, and though there was endemic trouble with the non-Chinese of Wuling in the middle Yangzi basin the only major rebellion, that of the Cheng [Tr'ung] sisters in present-day Vietnam, was firmly settled by the Han general Ma Yuan in 42. The north, however, remained a source of concern. The Xiongnu Shanyu Yu had supported Guangwu's rival Lu Fang, and even after Lu Fang's defeat the Xiongnu maintained a presence and expand control. By the mid-40s they occupied large tracts of imperial territory, and their raiding parties reached the North China plain and the Wei River near Chang'an.

Keywords: later Han; Wei river; Xiongnu Shanyu Yu
