Genghis Khan and the Mongols/Michael Gibson. Wayland Sentinel. Hardcover. Second impression 1980. Out of print. Condition: Very good. ISBN 0853401861
This book traces the ruthless rise to power of the Mongol leader Genghis Khan, from a young refugee to his later years as Khan of all the Mongols, ruler of one of the world’s largest empires. Illustrated with photographs, contemporary drawings, and specially commissioned diagrams and maps, it provides a fascinating insight into the little-known world of these nomads who, towards the end of the twelfth century, descended from the barren steppes of Central Asia to spread confusion and terror among the civilized states of the West.
