Sons of the Conquerors: The Rise of the Turkic World
Hugh Pope (au)
The Turkic world, Muslims for the most part, has over 140 million people worldwide. Turkic-speaking peoples range from ancient populations in Siberia & China, through six countries in an arc through central Eurasia to newer communities in western Europe & America. Here is a vivid picture of the descendants of the nomad armies who once conquered China & the Byzantine Empire. These Islamic lands were ruled by Turkic dynasties -- before their ascendancy was broken by the rising power of Europe, Russia, & China -- among them the Moguls, who conquered India; the Safavids, who laid the foundations of modern Iran; & the Ottomans, whose five-century-long empire encompassed Turkey, the Balkans, & the Middle East.
