Example text

Safeguarding trade along the Silk Road required securing the areas along China’s border with Central and South Asia. Invasions from the north led to the establishment of two major dynasties not run by the ethnic Han people during the second millennium—the Mongol (Yuan) and Manchu (Qing)—and several small dynasties that ruled over parts of China—the Qidan (Liao: 916–1125 CE) and the Jin (Jurchen/Ruzhen: 1115–1234 CE). The security of China’s periphery, therefore, was a very practical, immediate, and strategic concern to Chinese leaders.
