" . . . explores the military strategies, institutions and wars that reconstructed the Chinese empire which survived into modern times. Drawing on classical Chinese sources and the best modern scholarship from China and Japan, David A. Graff connects military affairs with political and social developments to show how China's history unfolded. Between 300 and 900 AD, both Chinese and barbarian regimes experimented with many different forms of military service, including the tribal warrior, the hereditary military retainer, the part-time farmer-soldier, and the full-time mercenary. 'Medieval Chinese Warfare, 300-900' is the first survey of medieval Chinese military history to be published in English. This seminal text will be of interest to both students of military history and to anyone with an interest in Chinese history."
