Ancient China and its Enemies: The Rise of Nomadic Power in East Asian History by Nicola Di Cosmo
Cambridge University Press | May 24, 2004 | English | ISBN: 0521543827 | 380 pages | PDF | 4 MB

This comprehensive history of the northern frontier of China through the first millennium B.C. details the formation of two increasingly distinct cultural areas: the sedentary Chinese and the northern nomads.

Di Cosmo investigates the origins of the antagonism between early China and its "barbarian" neighbors.
