The Biography of the Western Qiang is an invaluable document. It was published in the Book of the Later Han in the 5th century AD and gives a detailed history of the Qiang in the first two centuries AD but also includes a summary of Qiang history prior to that period. However, this biography should not be viewed as a comprehensive history as there are Qiang references in the earlier Han Shu which are not included in the Hou Han Shu references to the Qiang.
