Summary From the Huns to the Mongols, waves of nomadic horsemen swept out of Central Asia and wreaked havoc on Europe, India, and China. How were they so successful? An esteemed professor-who specializes in Arabic and Medieval studies--reveals just how "underdeveloped" societies spawned such great generals, from Attila to Genghis Khan; how nomadic Arabs carved out an empire in the 7th century; why the Mongols failed to conquer Europe; and where those unique, sea-borne raiders, the Vikings, fit into this story.
