Not to be confused with the Yizhoushu 逸周書 (zh:逸周书), also called 周書.
The Book of Zhou (周書/周书; pinyin Zhōu Shū) was the official history of the Chinese/Xianbei dynasty Northern Zhou, and it ranks among the official Twenty-Four Histories of imperial China. It was compiled by the Tang Dynasty historian Linghu Defen and was completed in 636. It consists of 50 chapters; some chapters have been lost and were replaced by other sources.
The book is being criticised for attempting to glorify the ancestors of the Tang Dynasty's officials who lived during that period.
