Genghis Khan And The Mongol Empire from the Author: William W. Fitzhugh. Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire presents the untold story of Mongolia and its people, utilizing the latest results of research in archaeology, forensics, history, art, and literature. The book's clear prose, beautiful design, and wide-ranging illustrations will fascinate general readers as well as scholars.The historical record of the far-flung Mongol dynasty is analyzed by distinguished scholars, including Morris Rossabi, who presents a portrait of Genghis that goes far beyond the stereotype of the barbarian conqueror to reveal the sophisticated administrative structure, religious and economic freedom, and social precepts that were his more lasting legacy. Historians David Morgan and Dan Waugh describe the western expansion of the Mongol empire, which reached the banks of the Danube at about the same time that Khara Khorum, the empire's capital city, was built in 1240.New information revealed by recent archaeological discoveries is discussed by Hermitage curator Mark Kramarovsky, who describes the Mongol cities and Genghissid burials of the Golden Horde in Russia and Ukraine. Underwater excavations document the remains of Kublai's ill-fated Japanese invasion fleet, which sank in a storm. Excavations at Khara Khorum have uncovered temples and workshops that were lost to history for 500 years.William Fitzhugh is director of the Arctic Studies Center at the Smithsonian Institution. Morris Rossabi is Distinguished Professor of history at the City University of New York and Columbia University. William Honeychurch is an assistant professor of anthropology at Yale University.

The Tibetan History Reader from the Author: Gray Tuttle. Answering a critical need for an accurate, in-depth history of Tibet, this single-volume resource reproduces essential, hard-to-find essays from the past fifty years of Tibetan studies. Covering the social, cultural, and political development of Tibet from the seventh century to the modern period, the volume is organized chronologically and regionally to complement courses in Asian and religious studies and world civilizations. Beginning with Tibet’s emergence as a regional power and concluding with its profound contemporary transformations, this anthology offers both a general and specific history, connecting the actions of individuals, communities, and institutions to broader historical trends that shaped Asia and the world. With contributions from American, French, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and Tibetan scholars, the collection reflects the international character of Tibetan studies and its multiple, interdisciplinary perspectives. Contributors address many aspects of Tibetan culture frequently neglected in popular accounts, and the editors render Tibetan person and place names in an easy-to-pronounce phonetic system—a key component increasing the volume’s accessibility. They also standardize complex and sometimes cryptic references to cited works, clearing the path for additional research in directly related and peripheral fields. By far the most concise scholarly anthology on Tibetan civilization in any Western language, this reader clarifies the history of Tibet, its relation to its neighbors, and its role in world affairs.
