Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a note on Zhou Yiliang's life. In the autumn of 1936, the author entered the Institute of History and Philology located at the North Pole Pavilion in Nanjing. He was assigned to pursue research on the history of the Wei, Jin, and Southern and Northern Dynasties (or Six Dynasties, 220-589) period. The author spent about one-half year in a comparatively unhurried and cautious manner to read the four standard histories of the Liu-Song, Qi, Liang, and Chen eras from the Southern Dynasties, and he wrote up an essay "Nanchao jingnei de gezhong ren ji zhengfu duidai zhi zhengce". The author's 1944 doctoral dissertation in the Department of Far Eastern Languages at Harvard University bore the title "Tantrism in China", a topic of massive scale. In late 1948 and early 1949, the author completed writing his essay "Qihuo kao".
