Description
The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400, establishing the Western notion of the "barbarian invasion." And yet as the bestselling author of The Secret History of the Mongol Queens reveals here, in nearly every country that the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization. More progressive than his European or Asian counterparts, Genghis Khan abolished torture, granted universal religious freedom, and smashed feudal systems of aristocratic privilege. Even after the Khan's death, Jack Weatherford argues in this revisionist history, his influence would be felt throughout Europe with the coming of the Renaissance.
