Translation of René Grousset’s masterpiece L'Empire des Steppes (1939) that chronicles the history of inner Asia from antiquity until 1757, the last year of the Jungar Empire. It covers the people of the steppes, dominated by three mighty figures—Atilla, Genghiz Khan, and Tamberlain—as they marched through ten centuries of history, from the borders of China to the frontiers of the West. The book includes nineteen maps, a comprehensive index, notes, and bibliography.
