Inhaltsangabe: Genghis Khan s name never fails to elicit strong, passionate reactions and he is usually introduced with phrases ranging from the great conqueror to evil incarnate . This book revisits and takes a closer look at his life, rather than limiting him to a few glib phrases.
Born Temujin, this courageous, astute boy from the Mongolian Plateau learnt the lessons of life from nature and his surroundings. Endowed with the qualities of leadership and a ruthlessly strong will, Genghis Khan was driven by the desire to unite the various tribes under one banner. An able administrator and a crafty warrior, he founded one of the largest empires in history an empire that stretched from the China Sea in the east to the Caspian Sea in the west; from Siberia in the north to Central China in the south that was informed by the ideas of religious tolerance, unity and meritocracy.
In Genghis Khan: The World Conqueror, the result of eight years of research and travel in Mongolia, Russia and China, Sam Djang has produced a fascinating and revealing account of the life and times of one of history s most intriguing figures.
