about this item

Excellent reading for those interested in a concise, rich text, with contributions from archeology to biological anthropology and dendrochronology. Presented in five parts beginning with the historical conditions of the inner Asian steppe prior to the rise of Genghis Khan, continuing with Genghis’ times, the Mongolian western states and Yuan China, and concluding with Genghis’ legacy from the decline of the Yuan dynasty to the present day. Findings from excavations in Khara Khorum include proof of the north-south Boulevard and extensive evidence of handicraft production and metalwork. The book’s clear prose, beautiful design, and wide-ranging illustrations will fascinate general readers as well as scholars.
