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.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
