Discoveries: Genghis Khan and the Mongol Empire
This is a tiny little picture book, and at first sight, easy to mistake as one for the kids. But it's great. The pictures, along with the highly intelligent captions on them, give a wealth of cultural insight. The text, while short and not a full history, is written by a marvelous French historian, and he fits into this format a great deal of... I have to use the word insight again. And again say, you'll find out about cultural matters. Better than its size suggests and stuffed with art.
