The first full study of the great nomad conqueror, Tamerlane.


Not a history of the last (so far) great nomadic conqueror, but a description and analysis of his political and administrative methods. Examines the fusion of Turkish, Mongol, and Islamic cultures that produced him in the 14th century; the politics in the army, among the tribes, and between the nomads and the settled peoples they ruled; and the structure of the government he created. The maps are quite poor. Printed on acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
