Synopsis

Genghis Khan and the Mongol empire Mongolia from pre-history to modern times by William W. Fitzhugh

This is a heavily illustrated, beautifully produced and accessible scholarly treatment of Mongol history for the wider public, offering a comprehensive view from pre-historic times to the modern age. The book is a concise, rich text, with contributions from archaeology to biological anthropology. Presented in five parts - Before Genghis, lands and peoples of Mongolia; Genghis Times; Mongolian Western Empire; Kublai Khan and Yuan China; concluding with Genghis' Legacy, the decline of the Yuan dynasty to the present day. Findings from excavations and extensive evidence of handicraft production and metalwork illustrate the book. The clear prose, beautiful design, and wide-ranging illustrations will fascinate general readers as well as scholars. The book has contributions from forty leading scholars and is published in collaboration with The Smithsonian Institution and the Mongolian Preservation Foundation.
