by Morris Rossabi
- CULTURAL PORTRAIT
- 160 PAGES
Back in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries the Mongols created the largest land-based empire in world history. In this addition to the Oxford University Press Very Short Introduction series, Rossabi, a leading historian, revises the popular perception of the Mongols as savage conquerors to show them as wise rulers who adopted shrewd economic policies, patronized the arts and helped foster peace in the lands they controlled.
