'... this should be regarded as an example of the genus 'Cambridge History' at its impressive best.' Professor David Morgan, University of Wisconsin-Madison
'This is the first significant history of mediaeval Inner Asia since the work by Vasilii Bartol'd. The second volume of The Cambridge History of Inner Asia presents twenty contributions written by well-established scholars and develops two historiographical theses: the Mongol creation of mediaeval Central Asia; a longer periodisation of the Middle Age.'
