One of the world’s most ruthless warriors, Chinggis Khan conquered nearly all of Asia in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, transforming the scattered and impoverished Mongols into an exceptionally proud and powerful nation. In this riveting and thoroughly researched portrait, Japan’s celebrated epic novelist drives at the root of the khan’s great desires and insatiable appetite for supremacy. Beginning with his birth in 1162, The Blue Wolf follows the crucial alliances that led to Chinggis Khan’s great campaigns in North China, Bukhara, and Samarkand, as well as the state of Khorazm.
