The Conquests of Genghis Khan
Twenty-First Century Books, 2008年1月1日 - 160 頁
Can one man really change the world? If that man is Genghis Khan, the answer is yes. Born around 1161, Temujin, as he was named, grew up in humble surroundings. As a teenager, he fled from enemy raiders, but he became a fearless—and feared—man who commanded an army of thousands and an empire of millions. In fact, by the mid-1200s Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire included much of the known world. Though he was responsible for the deaths of millions, he also showed tolerance for religious and cultural differences among the many peoples he conquered, and he brought stability and unification to a vast area where it had never before existed. Even today, the name Genghis Khan continues to instill fear in some and admiration in others. His election as Great Khan in approximately 1190 is surely one of history’s most pivotal moments.

Like other Mongol mothers, Hoelun probably wrapped her newborn son in warm sheep's wool and placed him in a wooden cradle that could be placed on her back when it was time to ride. She soon had other children to tend, as well.
Temujin's pride and fierce will—and, probably, his frustration with his once-influential family's diminished way of life— brought him into conflict with Begter, the older of his two half brothers. In The Secret History's version of ...
