About the Author

Reuven Amitai is Eliyahu Elath Professor for Muslim history, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.

Michal Biran is Max and Sophie Mydans Foundation Professor in the Humanities, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.


The twelve essays vary widely in geographic concentration, from Mongolia and China to the far western steppe, and cover various periods from the first millennium BCE to the sixteenth century CE. Nevertheless, the shared viewpoint of rethinking pervasive stereotypes of Asian nomads gives the book a coherence and focus rare in edited volumes. . . . With mainstream history still following national boundaries (in China and India, for example), many specialties and regions need the bracing viewpoint of the sort of trans-Asian studies showcased in this important volume.-- "H-Net Reviews"
