Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of books, territories and commandery Units of Later Han that are mentioned in the book A Biographical Dictionary of Later Han to the Three Kingdoms (23-220 Ad). It also presents a list of styles, which provides cross-references from style to surname plus personal name, and notable experiences of woman. A notable aspect of the restoration was the continuity of power among men of family. Though the fall of Wang Mang came from widespread popular revolt and was followed by more than a decade of warfare, most regions of the empire suffered only passing disturbance, and the structures of local society were left largely intact. Landed families held onto their properties, and they maintained their position throughout the dynasty: manorial estates controlled tenant farming and were supported by profitable trade, while local power was enforced on occasion by gangs of retainers.
