Attacking Shu Area and the Political Pattern During the Last Stage of East Jin Dynasty and the Early Stage of Song Dynasty
LI Wen-cai (History Department, Hebei University, Baoding 071002, China )
Lin Yu dispatched troops to attack the Shu Area for twice,in the second year of Yi Xi Period (406 A. D) and in the ninth year of Yi Xi Period (413 A. D) respectively when he controlled East Jin Dynasty. The condition for the first attack was not mature and its true intention was not to capture Shu Area but for political aim. But the second attack in the ninth year of Yi Xi Period was the inevitable choice of the history. The putting down of the rebellion in Yi Zhou not only laid foundation for the return of Liang Zhou,but was also responsible for the long confrontation of the South and North that followed.
