"Sidelights"

de Crespigny writes: "I started with an interest in China: academically it is an enormous, rich, and fascinating field. I now find that I am interested primarily in the history of states in decline--and from that point of view the collapse of the great Han empire in the second century is a tragedy as impressive and moving as the tragedy of China in the first part of this century."
