The conventional view of Genghis Khan as a ruthless leader who destroyed societies is turned on its head in this New York Times bestseller. Scholar and researcher Jack Weatherford shows how Khan was the first ruler to grant religious freedom and how he instituted diplomatic immunity and outlawed torture. Most significantly, Weatherford demonstrates how Khan was responsible for uniting East and West, laying the foundations for the modern nation-state and global economic systems.

Описание: Jack Weatherford tells the gripping story, lost to history until now, of the female heirs of the Mongol Empire. He begins with the six daughters of Genghis Khan and traces their royal families through 250 years of upheaval as the empire tore itself apart, pitting brother against sister and son against mother. The refusal of these women to surrender created a sustained struggle between them and their male cousins in office in China, Russia, and Persia in a bloody drama that repeatedly crisscrossed the Eurasian continent. In this fascinating narrative from the bestselling author, a lost world and a remarkable family is brought to life.
