2011 Wuxi



Wuxi (Chinese: 无锡;) is an old city in Jiangsu province, People's Republic of China. Split in half by Lake Taihu, Wuxi borders
Changzhou to the west and Suzhou to the east. The northern half looks across to Taizhou across the Yangtze River,
while the southern half also borders the province of Zhejiang to the south. Wuxi earned its nickname "Pearl of Lake Taihu"
because it's built on the shore of Lake Taihu in a scenic setting. Wuxi was also dubbed "little Shanghai" because of its close
proximity to the city, rapid urbanization and booming economy.

The Three Kingdoms period was a period in Chinese history, part of an era of disunity called the "Six Dynasties"
following immediately the loss of de facto power of the Han Dynasty rulers. The earlier, "unofficial" part of the period,
from 184 to 220, was marked by chaotic infighting between warlords in various parts of China.
The middle part of the period, from 220 and 263, was marked by a more militarily stable arrangement between three rival states,
Wei, Shu, and Wu.  The later part of this period was marked by the collapse of the tripartite situation: first the conquest of Shu
by Wei (263), then the overthrow of Wei by the Jin Dynasty (265), and the destruction of Wu by Jin (280).
