9780393927115: The Mongols and Global History (Norton Documents Reader)

An accessible, documents-based introduction to the history of the Mongols.

The volume opens with a brief original essay by Morris Rossabi, one of the world’s foremost scholars on the Mongols. Rossabi’s essay gives a historical and interpretive overview of the Mongols and charts their invasions and subsequent rule over the largest contiguous land empire in world history. Following is a rich collection of primary sources translated into English from Armenian, Arabic, Chinese, Franco-Italian, Italian, Korean, Latin, Persian, Russian, Syriac, and Tibetan that will give students a clear sense of the extraordinary geographic and linguistic range of the Mongol Empire as well as insight into the empire’s rise, how it governed, and how it fell. Each primary source includes a headnote and study questions. The volume ends with a list of further readings.
