Encyclopedia of Mongolia and the Mongol Empire is the first comprehensive A-to-Z encyclopedia of Mongolia and the Mongols. It provides up-to-date, accurate entries on all aspects of the Mongols' history and culture, from prehistory to modern times. While particular emphasis is placed on the Mongol Empire, entries cover the country's entire history and range from geography to culture and religion to personalities, battles, daily life, and folklore.
Entires on major entries are accompanied by a further reading list to guide readers to selected resources for more in-depth research. This volume is a great first stop for research on Mongolia as well as a valuable reference for those wishing to expand their knowledge of a region that is, to most Westerners, exotic and relatively unknown. Black-and-white photographs, detailed maps, a bibliography, chronology, and index round out this resource.
