The Greatest Hits of Mongol History

The Mongol Empire’s legacy in medieval Eurasia was complicated. The Mongols destroyed kingdoms and killed tens of thousands of people, but also facilitated political, economic and religious connections. Colleen Ho (University of Maryland) analyzes the enigmatic Chinggis (aka Genghis) Khan, highlights the Mongols’ appearances in modern culture and presents the Mongols as nuanced players in history.
