Genghis Khan is one of the great poets of history: a leader in genius, driven by an inspiring vision for the rule of peace in the world.Believing that he was divinely protected, Genghis united warring clans to create a nation then an empire that unfolded in most of Asia.By virtue of his grandson, Kubilai Khan, the vision has become a more complex religious ideology, justifying further expansion.Kublai doubled the size of the empire until, in the late 13th century, he and the rest of the Golden Family of Genghis controlled a fifth of the inhabited world.Along the way, he conquered all of China, gave the nation borders it has today, and then finally discovered the limits of growth.Genghis’s rule of the world rule dream turned out to be a fantasyAnd yet, as far as the magnitude of conquests is concerned, never has a vision and the character of a man had such an effect on the world.Tracing the evolution of this vision, John Man offers a unique account of the Mongolian Empire, from young Genghis to old Kublai, from a rejected teenager to the most powerful emperor in the world.
