Detailed Product Description
New York, AMS Press, 1975 reprint. 370 pp. Tan cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Fine. 

Covers the whole of the ancient empire of Genghis Khan, Manchuria and Mongolia, Damirs and T'ien Shan area. Primary source of observations on the Mongols, T'ung-kan, Quazaqs, Dirghiz, Turki and other peoples. Fascinating narrative on Central Asia. Charting the author's eight months journey from Chuguchak through Ladakah via Kulja, Kashgar and Yarkand. 

Lattimore was a well-respected scholar who was fluent in both Chinese and Mongolian. No small feat at the time. He was also well-underwritten by some of the most famous institutions who sponsored his research and Central Asian travels. His books are authoritative, fascinating and give keen insights to the complex relationships in Central Asia, the political forces, the cultural variations of the divergent peoples and the geography. His works are a valuable resource for areas largely neglected at the time mostly because the area was closed for such a long time. Against the odds, he won his way into Mongolia and Central Asia and did his research while traveling in the most primitive areas by the traditional camel, donkey and yak cart. He talked to the people, understood their ways and culture. His record is a valuable insight to who and what was going from the 1920s down to the 1940s.
