Overview

Mongolia borders Russia to the north and the People's Republic of China to the south, east, and west. The Mongol Empire was founded by Genghis Khan in the 13th century. It eventually submitted to the Manchu rulers of Qing China in the 17th century. After the Soviet-backed revolution of 1921 it became a one-party state known from 1924 as the Mongolian People's Republic. Following the democratic revolution of 1990, which ushered in multiparty politics and a market economy, the new constitution adopted in 1992 renamed the country Mongolia. The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Mongolia greatly expands on the previous edition through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, appendixes, and over 1000 cross-referenced dictionary entries on important people, places, events, and institutions, as well as significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects.

Editorial Reviews

The Ub Post-Mongolia
The third enlarged edition of the Historical Dictionary of Mongolia by Alan Sanders, the well-known British Mongolist....updates and greatly expands on the second edition with over 1,000 cross-referenced alphabetical entries about important Mongolian people, places, events and institutions, as well as significant political, economic, social and cultural aspects of Mongolian life from Genghis Khan’s times to the present day. The closer readers get to modern Mongolia, the greater the detail Sanders provides....The dictionary also has a detailed introductory essay, an up-to-date chronology, extensive bibliography, and several appendices, plus 34 photographs taken by the author.
Booklist
The first thing to note about the third edition of this title is that it is greatly expanded from the second edition. Many articles have been rewritten. New articles on politicians and businesspeople have been added, while other articles have been removed to bring the book up-to-date and give a broad look at modern Mongolia. As with all of the titles in the Historical Dictionaries of Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East series, a chronology of events covers both historical as well as recent events up through the end of 2009. The introduction is a 30-page history that focuses heavily on the years since the overthrow of communism and provides a gateway to the articles in the main section. Entries discuss topics ranging from Cattle and Yak to Human rights. Appendixes list members of the Mongolian legislature. An extensive bibliography of books and articles on Mongolian topics completes the volume. For libraries owning the first or second edition, it is well worth updating with this title. Sanders is a well-known expert on Mongolia, and this is one of the few titles out there that covers the country and Mongolian populations in Russia and China as well.
