Product description

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

Synopsis

A re-evaluation of Genghis Khan's rise to power examines the reforms the conqueror instituted throughout his empire and his uniting of East and West, which set the foundation for the nation-states and economic systems of the modern era.
