(p.241) 8 Horse Trading and Other Material Bargains
Sui-Tang China and Its Turko-Mongol Neighbors

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the argument that unlike popular belief, the material needs of the Turko-Mongols only played a small role in shaping the relations between the Sui-Tang Empires and Mongolia-based powers. It first discusses the economic impact of Turko-Mongol rule over subordinate peoples, where it considers the available economic opportunities, the administration, and taxation. The next section studies the administrative and financial impact on tribes accepting Tang authority. This chapter concludes with a discussion of the Tang horse system and a description of the horse trade.

Keywords:   material needs, economic impact, economic opportunities, administration, taxation, financial impact, Tang authority, Tang horse system, horse trade
