"Genghis Khan is one of history's immortals, alive in memory as a scourge, hero, military genius, and demigod. To Muslims, Russians, and westerners, he is a murderer of millions, a brutal oppressor.

Resumo:

"Genghis Khan is one of history's immortals, alive in memory as a scourge, hero, military genius, and demigod. To Muslims, Russians, and westerners, he is a murderer of millions, a brutal oppressor. Yet in his homeland of Mongolia he is the revered father of the nation, and the Chinese honor him as the founder of a dynasty. In his so-called Mausoleum in Inner Mongolia, worshippers seek the blessing of his spirit. In a supreme paradox, the world's most ruthless conqueror has become a force for peace and reconciliation." "This is more than just a gripping account of Genghis's rise and conquests. John Man uses firsthand experiences in China and Mongolia to reveal the Khan's enduring influence. He has traveled the length of the empire. He spotlights the tension between Mongols and Chinese, who both claim Genghis's spirit. He is the first writer to explore the hidden valley where Genghis is believed to have died, and one of the few westerners to climb the mountain where he was likely buried." "This narrative paints a vivid picture of the man himself, the places where he lived and fought, and the passions that surround him still. For in legend, ritual, and intense controversy, Genghis lives on."--Jacket.
