Rise and Rule of Tamerlane by Beatrice Forbes Manz
Book DescriptionThe great nomad conqueror Tamerlane rose to power in 1370 in the ruins of the Mongol Empire and led his armies of conquest from Russia to India, from Turkestan to Anatolia. In this, the first full study of an extraordinary person, Beatrice Forbes Manz examines Tamerlane as the founder of a nomad conquest dynasty and as a supremely talented individual, raising many current questions about the mechanisms of state formation, the dynamics of tribal politics, and the relations of tribes to central leadership.

UK Kirkus Review » Tamerlane was one of the great figures of the high middle ages. He was a fearsome nomad warrior who rose to power in 1370 after the collapse of the Mongol Empire. In a career which spanned 35 years he vanquished huge swathes of the Middle East and Inner Asia and his achievements are of crucial significance in the history of that region, marking a transition from the period of nomadic conquest to one of settled states. Fabled in his lifetime, partly due to a deformity in his right arm and leg which earned him the epithet Temur the Lame, he has become a legendary figure since. In this first full scholarly study of his remarkable life, Professor Manz gives us another great medieval hero to set alongside those more familiar in the West. (Kirkus UK)
