I read the Indian edition of the book published by Rupa and the two volumes of the book were combined in one.
This book is a mixed bag.....while the research and the historical accuracy of the book merits applause yet the writing skills of the author and the editing leaves much to be desired.
The contents of this book can be broadly divided into 3 parts: birth of Temujin and his early years; his rise to power and the unification of the steppe; his campaigns against China and his subsequent campai

It appears to be poorly written. Sam Djang may have had a hard time putting the plethora of information about Genghis Khan he gleaned for 8 years into his own masterpiece.

That part could just serve as paddings. In addition, there are some repet ...more

The story of genghis khan is incredible but the same could have been presented in a better way .
The story line can be a bit confusing some of the times as author jumps out of the flow .

Dapat versi terjemahan buku ini dari sebuah kuis di twitter dari Mizan grup (buku terbitan Bentang Pustaka). Genghis Khan adalah salah satu tokoh fenomenal di dunia, menarik membaca sejarah terbentuknya negara Mongolia dan kiprah Genghis Khan sendiri.

I liked the last paragraph to Preface- "I sincerely hope the readers of this book do not judge or measure him based on our modern standards. If so, this could lead to further misunderstandings about him.."
After reading the book, I started thinking why who wrote the history of Genghis Khan? By the end of his rule in 1227, Eurasia was one united empire ruled by policies, governed on the lines of modern state system. However, there was a systematic tarnishing of his image as "father of Mongolia" d

Dalam waktu tiga malam buku ini saya lahap habis. Ceritanya menarik..runutannya membuat penasaran untuk membuka bab selanjutnya.

Masa kecil sang penakluk dunia..yang nanti kelak kekuasaannya terluas dari dinasti-dinasti kerajaan lainnya yang pernah ada di dunia.

Temujin kecil yang takdirnya sudah tergaris dari kecil untuk menjadi pemersatu daratan Mongol kelak
