Product description


'It should be said at once that this is an excellent book.' Charles Melville, BSOAS

'In thirty years' time this book will still look like a turning point.' Peter Allen, Society for South Asia Studies

'Beatrice Manz has established the standards and criteria upon which all future studies of the warlord conqueror must be based.' John E. Woods, International Journal of Middle-East Studies

Book Description

In the first full study of an extraordinary person, Beatrice Forbes Manz examines Tamerlane as the founder of a nomad conquest dynasty and as a supremely talented individual, raising many current questions about the mechanisms of state formation, the dynamics of tribal politics, and the relations of tribes to central leadership.
