After the mid-10th century, a new unified dynasty called Song(960-1279)
was established in China, which replaced the 54-year-oldFive Dynasties
(907-960) during which the nation was carved up intoa number of separate
regimes by rival warlords. At the beginning ofthe Song Dynasty, a
rehabilitation policy was adopted, aiming to di-minish the social
repercussion caused by the dynastic change and helprestore agriculture
and handicraft to the original level as seen in theTang Dynasty
(618-907). Eventually, the Song saw an agriculturalgrowth exceeding that
of all the previous dynasties in history.The urban business economy was

River in the NorthernSong (960-1127) capital Kaifeng during the

growth alsohelped turn south China into a developed region. Thus the
