This paper analyzes the Rebellion from the opposite angle, as an event whose meaning was shaped by an increasingly xenophobic culture rather than the cause of the xenophobia. My research includes an updated, ethnic analysis of the Rebellion and close analysis of Tang cultural trends before and during the Rebellion, including religious policy, developing ideas of the foreigner in poetry and the emergence of ethnic violence. This  project adds to the increasing literature on ethnicity in the Tang of the last ten years.    Table of Contents Part 1: Evidence Against a Clear Ethnic Dimension to the Rebellion .................. 14 Part 2 New Cultural Paradigms and Ethnic Violence during the Rebellion ......... 50 Endnotes ................................................................................................................ 98 Bibliography ....................................................................................................... 116     List of Figures Figure 1.
