Abstract

The Sui dynasty (581–618) was a short-lived Chinese dynasty that reunified the country after nearly four centuries of disunion since the end of the Eastern Han dynasty (25–220). Despite its early demise, the Sui reestablished the important ideal of unity that originated from the Qin (221 b.c.e.-206 b.c.e.) and Han empires. It also saw the construction of the Grand Canal and establishment of the institutional framework in which the succeeding Tang dynasty (618–907) operated. The Sui dynasty set the stage for a prosperous age of Chinese culture.
