“In a thoroughly comprehensive manner, Helen Hundley successfully demonstrates the complex legacy of the Mongol presence in medieval history, when Mongol warriors created a vast political organism facilitating interethnic and intercontinental economic and cultural exchange.
Hundley offers the reader not only insight into the political organization of the diverse Mongol realm, but also an eloquent discussion on the religious effects of Mongol policies as well as the role of women in dynastic interests.
The usefulness of the text is manifold: it is helpful reference material for those who specialize in Asian Studies and the European Middle Ages and also teach world history with an emphasis on cultural interaction, and also serves a comprehensive introduction to the history of the Mongol Empire, accessible to general readership.”
— Sebastian P. Bartos, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Medieval and Early Modern History Valdosta State University
“Hundley provides a succinct and coherent introduction to the Mongol Empire. Students will find it lucid and interesting, without being overwhelmed.”
— Timothy May, Ph.D. Associate Dean of Arts & Letters, Professor of Central Eurasian History University of North Georgia
