Portrayals of the thirteenth-century Mongol invasions rightly emphasize murders and considerable destruction. This lecture describes some of these disasters, but also depicts their more positive economic and cultural influences in Eurasian history. The presentation will also offer visual images from the Mongol era.
Professor Rossabi is a historian of China and Central and Inner Asia. He teaches courses on Inner Asian, East Asian, and Chinese history at Columbia. He and Mary Rossabi are involved in an oral history of 20th and 21st century Mongolia, which has led to the publication of Socialist Devotees and Dissenters; A Herder, a Trader, and a Lawyer; and The Practice of Buddhism in Kharkhorin and its Revival (National Museum of Ethnology, Osaka, 2010, 2012, and 2013).
