A worthy followup to "Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World". Given the many segments of lost history, as a narrative these stories are difficult to tell, up until the final chapters on Queen Manduhai, which are well worth the read. Weatherford continues to add depth and color to a neglected but critical period in global history.
