Editar Emperor Taizu of Song r. In Kaifeng , he established a strong central government over the empire. He ensured administrative stability by promoting the civil service examination system of drafting state bureaucrats by skill and merit instead of aristocratic or martial status and promoted projects that ensured efficiency in communication throughout the empire. One such project was the creation by cartographers of detailed maps of each province and city which were then collected in a large atlas. From its inception with the first emperor Taizu, the Song Dynasty alternated between warfare and diplomacy with the ethnic Khitans of the Liao Dynasty in the northeast and with the Tanguts of the Western Xia Dynasty in the northwest. The Song Dynasty used military force in an attempt to quell the Liao Dynasty and recapture the Sixteen Prefectures , a territory under Khitan control that was traditionally considered to be part of the Chinese domain. The Chinese were forced to pay heavy tribute to the Khitans, although the paying of this tribute did little damage to the overall Song economy since the Khitans were heavily dependent upon importing massive amounts of goods from the Song Dynasty. The idealist Chancellor Fan Zhongyan — was the first to receive a heated political backlash when he attempted to make such reforms as improving the recruitment system of officials, increasing the salaries for minor officials, and establishing sponsorship programs to allow a wider range of people to be well educated and eligible for state service.

The first murder, with God the first detective! The Origins of Mystery Fiction Trying to unearth the origins of crime fiction is a bit like trying to find the source of art or music. Murder may be an unpleasant fact of life, but it is really just another way we express the essence of our human nature. Murder is not a social phenomenon like war or tyranny, instead it is the ultimate statement of our quest for personal power over the existential vagaries of an often unfriendly world. Of course, murder has been generally frowned upon for most of recorded history, and it clearly falls far beyond any arbitrary line of acceptable moral behaviour.

My hands were too slow — slower than most people. I worked as a waitress at a restaurant and would drop the tray and break the plates.
