Sui-Tang China and Its Turko-Mongol Neighbors

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a comparison of the Sui-Tan elite perceptions of the borderlands with the complications of interethnic relations in frontier regions. It describes the attitudes of the Sui-Tang elites towards the Turko-Mongols and discusses Confucian ideology and record-keeping practices that influenced premodern historiography to overlook the Turko-Mongols and other borderland inhabitants living within the empires. This chapter also assesses the Sui-Tang elite, the role of Turko-Mongols, and the China-Inner Asian borderlands.

Keywords:   Sui-Tang elite, perceptions, interethnic relations, frontier regions, Confucian ideology, record-keeping practices, premodern historiography, Turko-Mongols
