This is indeed a brief history of one of the most famousinfamous rulers of the world Clements tries to condense the complicated reign of Khubilai and the nature of the Mongol Empire into about 200 pages not an easy task However he does an admirable job of synthesizing many different sources to relate the ruling style of the great Kahn It is not a true biography because there does not appear to be enough extant sources to truly investigate what type of man Khubilai truly wasClements often relies on Marco Polo s famous account to give the details of the Khan s life and rule This is of course the most famous and accessible source for us Westerners However the author also does a good job of double checking Polo s facts with Japanese Chinese Mongolian and even Arab sources The book definitely gives you a feel for how determined and brutal the Mongols were to conuer China and the kingdoms on the edge of their ever expanding empire It gives you the sense the Kubilai represneted the heighth of the Mongol empire They had conuered all the could and the different segments of this huge empire started to assimilate into the cultures they had conuer Thus Khubilai becomes both the apex and decline of the largest empire on the face of the earth This account makes you want to read about the Mongols and how they created this empire and there are plently of books out there about that but it also makes you want to read what Marco Polo actually had to say about his twenty year visit with the Great Kahn
