II. Enjeux frontaliers
Military Personnel and Bureaucrats on the Gansu-Qinghai Border in the Late XIth century
Based on several studies dealing with the policy of assimilation of the North-Western tribesmen implemented by Wang Anshi (1021-1086), this essay focuses, beyond the sole event of the reforms on the impact of this policy upon the bureaucratic
organization. The pioneering front stirred rivalries between various cliques within the court, which viewed it as a special space, the management of which could provide opportunities for political restructuring at the central level. Hence, management of the frontier played a direct role in the bureaucratic alliances at the highest levels of government, and reshaped the overall orientations of the dynasty.
