Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World Hardcover – Import 16 Mar 2004
Product Description From Booklist When the Mongols led by Genghis Khan exploded out of the central Asian steppes in the early thirteenth century they began the acquisition of the largest land empire in history. Eventually the Mongol Empire extended from the Pacific to the Mediterranean and from northern Siberia to Southeast Asia. Yet the West focuses primarily on Mongol savagery. In his revisionist history of the empire anthropology professor Weatherford uses the so-called Secret History a long-suppressed Mongol text to balance the scales. He certainly makes some telling points. The Mongols unified disparate lands maintained and even expanded east-west trade routes and made possible eventual contact between Europe and East Asia. Although Mongol rulers were not innovators Weatherford convincingly asserts that like the Romans they effectively used the talents of their subject peoples. Unfortunately Weatherford is prone to exaggeration. He too easily accepts unverifiable legends as facts and he gives the Mongols unwarranted credit for fostering the European Enlightenment. Still this is a well-written and usually credible work that provides a necessary reassessment of the legacy of this vast empire. Jay Freeman Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved Review "There is very little time for reading in my new job. But of the few books I've read my favourite is Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford (Crown Publishers New York). It's a fascinating book portraying Genghis Khan in a totally new light. It shows that he was a great secular leader among other things." —Manmohan Singh Prime Minister of India “Reads like the Iliad . . . Part travelogue part epic narrative.” — Washington Post “It’s hard to think of anyone else who rose from such inauspicious beginnings to something so awesome except maybe Jesus.” — Harper’s “Weatherford’s lively analysis restores the Mongol’s reputation and it takes wonderful learned detours. . . . Well written and full of suprises.” — Kirkus Reviews “Weatherford is a fantastic storyteller. . . . [His] portrait of Khan is drawn with sufficiently self-complicating depth. . . . Weatherford’s account gives a generous view of the Mongol conqueror at his best and worst.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune From the Trade Paperback edition. See all Product Description
