The creator of the world’s greatest empire is one of history’s immortals. He is also at the heart of one of the greatest mysteries -- how and where was he buried? Its solution might, conceivably, reveal a treasure on a scale not seen since the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb.

From the Inside Flap:

The creator of the world?s greatest empire is one of history?s immortals. He is also at the heart of one of the greatest mysteries -- how and where was he buried? Its solution might, conceivably, reveal a treasure on a scale not seen since the discovery of Tutankhamen?s tomb.

About the Author:

John Man is a historian and traveller with special interests in Mongolia and the history of written communication. His GOBI: TRACKING THE DESERT was the first book on the subject since the 1920s. He is also the author of THE ATLAS OF THE YEAR 1000, a portrait of the world at the turn of the millennium, ALPHA BETA, on the roots of the alphabet, and THE GUTENBERG REVOLUTION, an examination of the origins and impact of printing. His most recent book is GENGHIS KHAN. He lives in London.

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Genghis Khan - creator of the greatest empire the world has ever seen - is one of history s immortals. In Central Asia, they still use his name to frighten children. In China, he is honoured as the founder of a dynasty. In Mongolia he is the father of the nation. In the USA, Time magazine, voted Genghis Khan the most important person of the last millennium . But how much do we really know about this man? How is it that an unlettered, unsophisticated warrior-nomad came to have such a profound effect on world politics that his influence can still be felt some 800 years later? How he united the deeply divided Mongol peoples and went on to rule an empire that stretched from China in the east to Poland in the west (one substantially larger than Rome s at its zenith) is an epic tale of martial genius and breathtaking cruelty. John Man s towering achievement in this book, enriched by his experiences in China and Mongolia today, is to bring this little-known story vividly and viscerally to life.
