Summary, etc.:
"While most students of world history know of the Mongol Empire created by Chinggis (Genghis) Khan, Mongolia, a country with a long and complex history, remains a bit of a cipher. This detailed account of Mongolian history from 209 B.C.E. to 2003 C.E. does much to fill in the lacuna. Though there is special emphasis on the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the time of the expansion of the Mongol Empire, coverage is good for all time periods, and the encyclopedia as a whole makes a sound case for the enormous influence of Mongolian civilization on the history of the Far East, the Indian subcontinent, and Eastern Europe." --
