How Mongolia Matters: War, Law, and Society.


How Mongolia Matters: War, Law, and Society

Edited by Morris Rossabi



200 pages



Brill's Inner Asian Library; Volume 36


Scholars of history, language, law, religion, and Asia as a region seek to dispel some of the myths about the Mongols and Inner Asia generally by sifting the sources, analyzing their biases, and explicating phrases and passages in the primary texts. The goal is to understand the motivations and actual events in order to resolve controversies about Mongol history and culture. Their topics include Sagan Sechen on the Tumu incident, Jochi and the early western campaigns, Qipchak networks of power in Mongol China, celebrating war with the Mongols, and modern origins of Chinggis Khan worship: the Mongolian response to Japanese influences.
