Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

Title: Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

Author: Jack Weatherford

Reviewer: Babi Hammond, Special Collections Research Center, NCSU Libraries

Weatherford is not a specialist in the history of the Mongols, and his book is not a perfectly reliable guide to the history of the Mongol Empire. But it is great read, and in broad aspect very enlightening, especially as an introduction to the topic.
