CHP-198-The History of China-Vietnam Relations Part 2

Shi Xie’s impact on bringing Chinese culture to the Jiao region is discussed.  For most of this period, Vietnam remained under the direct administrative control of China.  Aside from a few quiet moments, there was sustained local unrest to deal with.  Either local Viets were rising up against their Chinese overlords or there was a constant battle being fought with Lao, Linyi, Champa and other tribes, states, and kingdoms that surrounded Vietnam to the west and south.  It was also a period where great Viet national heroes and heroines start getting written into the record.  Sorry once again for the wooden sounding Vietnamese pronunciation.
