Synchronicity: Tang Dynasty

While waiting for a big update to finish uploading, I was just reading the Outline of History’s account of the Tang Dynasty; and once I’ve restarted and opened the bing homepage, voila: the news crawl’s “today in history” indicates that today is the anniversary of the fall of Tang!

Incidentally, The Oxford History of the World apparently fails to dedicate a single page to the Tang Dynasty: the few scattered references in the index are indeed scattered: every mention is a mere peripheral phrase in the treatment of Islam or Turks or somesuch.

Thankfully, I do have Keay’s History of China, which perhaps will make good bedtime reading tonight.
