The conventional view of Genghis Khan as a ruthless leader who destroyed societies is turned on its head in this New York Times bestseller. Scholar and researcher Jack Weatherford shows how Khan was the first ruler to grant religious freedom and how he instituted diplomatic immunity and outlawed torture. Most significantly, Weatherford demonstrates how Khan was responsible for uniting East and West, laying the foundations for the modern nation-state and global economic systems. This truly is revisionist history at its very best.
