 Sanguo Zhi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At the time Wei and Wu both had their own histories and it was with these works as basis that Chen Shou began work.
The work collects the smaller histories of the rival states Wei, Shu and Wu into a single text and provided the basis for the later more popular historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Since Shu lacked a history of its own, data was compiled by Chen himself. /wiki/Sanguo_Zhi   (903 words)

 Talk:Twenty-Four Histories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The compiler of the Song, Liao and Jin Dynasty histories should probably be listed also by his Chinese name Tuotuo (脱脱)--(there's currently only a Chinese page for him)-- and Ou Yangxiu should be Ouyang Xiu and link there.
I don't know what it is either, but it is linked from History of China and List of China-related topics, so it apparently has something to do with the history of China (or "traditional history", since it's redirected from there).
The bottom of the page seems mislabelled; those aren't related books, those are cases in which a single compiler was unable to complete the history (usually before his death) and the task was passed on to others, sometimes his children. /wiki/Talk:Twenty-Four_Histories   (283 words)

 '24 Histories' Translated into Modern Chinese - China History Forum, online chinese history forum
A "New History of the Yuan" 《新元史》 was also written in the ROC period, and I've seen it included as a 26th history in a CD set of the official histories.
This is of course, a canon used during Qing (official histories are usually about previous times.) After Qing fell, traditional learning was abolished, and I guess because of that the ROC and the scholars no longer followed this traditional canonization of historical books, and didn't add a 25th history.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2003.09.14
Another problem about the accessibility of Histories I is the fact that the last books of the Annals have not survived, so that the backdrop of the notorious bellum Neronis is itself difficult to penetrate.
The strongest such sections are where she extends her focus to include broader analysis beyond Tacitus, especially in her introductions to (a) Histories 1.4-11 on the chronological retrospective and geographical survey (98-100), which is particularly constructive in comparing Sallust's techniques, and (b) Histories 1.86 on supernatural phenomena (273-5), which uses Livy well.
D.'s new commentary on Histories I is the latest Tacitean addition to the Cambridge series, which already includes R.H. Martin and A.J. Woodman's Tacitus Annals IV (1999 revised edition) and R. Mayer's Tacitus Dialogus de Oratoribus (2001). /bmcr/2003/2003-09-14.html   (1849 words)

Emperors who were warlike were usually opposed by their officials and condemned by history (examples include Qin Shi Huang, Yongle Emperor), while emperors who decisively moved from war to peace, and from military (武) to civil (文) values (such as Emperor Gao of Han) were correspondingly praised.
One of the most important Chinese contributions to military history is the formula for gunpowder, which was known in Song times.

 UNESCO Courier: Saintly sons and daughters: ancient China's enduring cult of filial piety
A chapter is reserved for them in twenty of the twenty-four dynastic histories and countless separate collections are devoted to them, much like the "Lives of the Saints' that were so popular in Europe almost until modern times.
The earliest examples of final extravagancesI have been able to find in the dynastic histories are taken from the Hou Hanshu, principally from Chapter 39, which is entirely devoted to filial sons and daughters and probably dates from the middle of the fourth century AD.
Evidence of filial piety is also foundthroughout the earliest period of Chinese history, even though the character for filial piety, xiao, strangely enough, does not appear in the earliest writings, the oracle bone inscriptions. /p/articles/mi_m1310/is_1986_Nov/ai_4589202   (1477 words)

Each of the four half-hour episodes highlights one of the Party's Four Basic Principles, with a commentary and images that interpret the history of the past 150 years as a process leading to inevitable socialist victory in China.
The episode is a meditation on the history of Beijing in the 20th Century, the subtext of which is a 'reflexive comment' on the events of 1989 by indirect reference to earlier historical events, dates and personalities.
The years 1985-88 were, nonetheless, something of a watershed in terms of media representations of history due in part to Hu Yaobang's pronouncements and the appointment in late 1985 of Zhu Houze as head of the Party's organs of propaganda. /themes/Histmasses.html   (7748 words)
