History of the Mongols from the 9th to the 19th Century: The So-Called Tartars of Russia and Central Asia
Ivan counselled Mengli Girai to take no heed of these advances. The Lithuanians, he said, despite all honour, have thrown their ally, who has so long served them, into chains, and, like Seyid Ahmed in former days, this new victim of their treachery will perish in captivity. Do not fear, therefore, that they will give liberty to your enemy, for they have reason to dread his revenge. from Seyid Ahmed, Murtaza and Sheikh Ahmed Khans This 1876 work is a comprehensive history of the nomad tribes who dominated Central Asia during the early centuries of the last millennium, and of their great rulers: the khans. Drawing firsthand on numerous scholarly sources and full of illustrative detail and entertaining anecdotes, this remains a vital reference on a civilization now lost to time. Part 2 of this three-volume work covers in detail the history and campaigns of the Golden Horde, Russia during the Tartar domination, the empire of Jingis (Genghis) Khan and his revolutionary impact, and much more. British ethnologist and historian SIR HENRY HOYLE HOWORTH (1842 1923) served as president of the Royal Archaeological Institute, and is the author of Glacial Nightmare and the Flood (1893) and Methods of Archaeological Research (1896), among other works.
