Empires of the Silk Road: A History of Central Eurasia from the Bronze Age to the Present

Beckwith unites the history of the peoples of the world’s largest landmass into a remarkable history by describing the rise and fall of the great Central Eurasian empires such as the Scythians, the Huns, the Turks, and the Mongols under Genghis Khan.
