The remote vastness of Mongolia has remained somewhat of a mystery to most Westerners - no less so in the 20th century. Homeland of the legendary conqueror Chingiz Khan, in modern times Mongolia itself has been the object of imperial rivalry. For most of the 20th century it was under Soviet domination. Mikhail Gorbachev began the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Mongolia in 1989, a process completed in 1992. By 1996 a coalition of opposition parties triumphed in national elections, and Mongolia launched itself on a new course. It is perhaps the most intriguing of the post-community "transition" societies. This volume examines Mongol history over the past century, embracing not only Mongolia proper but also Mongol communities in Russia and China. Contributions, based on new archival research and the latest fieldwork, are from the world's top experts in the field - including four authors from Mongolia and others from Japan, Russia, Taiwan, Great Britain and the United States. Stephen Kotkin's introductory chapter is an overview of Mongol studies. The essays in part 1 examine Sino-Russian competition over Outer Mongolia. Part 2 looks at international diplomacy in Mongolia, including the role of Japan. Part 3 focuses on contemporary issues ranging from economic and cultural change to emergent elites. A concluding essay surveys Mongolian foreign policy.

From the Back Cover:

The remote vastness of Mongolia has always been a mystery to most Westerners -- and no less so in the twentieth century. Today, Mongolia is perhaps the most intriguing of the post-Soviet "transition" societies.

This volume examines Mongol history over the past century, embracing not only Mongolia proper but also Mongol communities in Russia and China. The contributions, based on new archival research and the latest fieldwork, are by the world's top experts -- including four authors from Mongolia and others from Japan, Russia, Taiwan, Great Britain, and the United States.

Stephen Kotkin's introductory chapter offers a masterful overview of Mongol studies. The essays in Part I examine Sino-Russian competition over Outer Mongolia. Part II looks at international diplomacy, including the involvement of Japan. In Part III the focus is on contemporary issues ranging from economic development and cultural change to nationalism and emergent elites. A concluding essay looks at Mongolia's foreign policy and particularly its relations with the surrounding states, Russia and China.
