From the Publisher“The remarkable success of David Morgan's book on the Mongols is partly a reflection of the persistent interest in the Mongol phenomenon … and partly on the skill, humour, and authority that he brings to bear on the subject. An attractive and useful re-edition of an excellent textbook, which beneath its accessible and engaging manner contains a wide-ranging account of the Mongol empire and thorough exposition of the issues being addressed in current research.” International History Review
"The second edition of The Mongols remains the standard work on the Mongols. With the additional chapter and bibliography it is unlikely to be superseded in the near future and will be a useful reference to any scholar."
"I have used this book continually for many years as one of the central textbooks for my courses on Mongols and related subjects and will do so with the new edition. The Mongols has a nice mixture of narrative chapters and those devotes to themes … provide a chronological framework … and in-depth discussion." Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
Praise for the previous edition:
"Well-written, well-documented presentation, with an excellent - exceptionally accurate - bibliography. I know of no better book to give a general view of the 'great' epoch of Mongol History."
English Historical Review
"The appearance of a new, well-done general history is a welcome event. The outcome is an excellent and readable account."
Middle East Studies Association Bulletin
"Excellent work, the best that we have of its kind."
