The Great Empires of Asia

£8.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Some of Asia's greatest empires flourished during the last millennium, from the Khmer empire (802-1566) of South East Asia to the defeat of Japan in the Second World War - but we still believe the myth that these centuries were dominated by European empires. Challenging such a view, the seven essays in this beautifully illustrated book reveal that Asian kingdoms - the Mongols, Ming, Khmer, Ottomans, Safavids, Mughals and Meiji - played a significant part in this era of polycentric world power.
