From the Publisher“The remarkable success of David Morgan's book on the Mongolsis partly a reflection of the persistent interest in the Mongolphenomenon … and partly on the skill, humour, and authoritythat he brings to bear on the subject. An attractive and usefulre-edition of an excellent textbook, which beneath its accessibleand engaging manner contains a wide-ranging account of the Mongolempire and thorough exposition of the issues being addressed incurrent research.” International HistoryReview
"The second edition of The Mongols remains the standardwork on the Mongols. With the additional chapter and bibliographyit is unlikely to be superseded in the near future and will be auseful reference to any scholar."
"I have used this book continually for many years as one of thecentral textbooks for my courses on Mongols and related subjectsand will do so with the new edition. The Mongols has a nice mixtureof narrative chapters and those devotes to themes … provide achronological framework … and in-depth discussion."Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
