Death Throes of an Empire - a history of later Han Empire and early Three Kingdoms

Hello, this series will be taking an in-depth look at the period from social structure, taxation, military structure, government institution, and population changes of the later Han dynasty and the early period of the Three Kingdom era in hope to answer the question on how the Han Empire collapse in such a spectacular fashion. This is the first episode of the series where we look at the political background of the Han court in the 170s and 180s and the fights between a group of literati called the partisans and the faction of powerful eunuchs called the eunuch marquises, and how these events led to the conflagration we will eventually call the Three Kingdoms period.
