Item description for The Secret History of the Mongols: A Mongolian Epic Chronicle of the Thirteenth Century (Brill's Inner Asian Library) by Igor De Rachewiltz...

The 13th century Secret History of the Mongols, covering the great inggis Qans (1162-1227) ancestry and life, stands out as a literary monument of first magnitude. Written partly in prose and partly in epic poetry, it is the major native source on inggis Qan, also dealing with part of the reign of his son and successor gdei (1229-41).

This true handbook contains an historical introduction, a full translation of the chronicle in accessible English, plus an extensive commentary. Indispensable for the historian, the Sino-Mongolist, the Altaic philologist, and anyone interested in comparative literature and Central Asian folklore.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret History of the Mongols: A Mongolian Epic Chronicle of the Thirteenth Century (Brill's Inner Asian Library)?

Definitive Version of the Secret History of the Mongols  Jan 30, 2004
For decades students of "The Secret History of the Mongols" (the primary source on the life of Genghis Khan) have been using de Rachewiltz's indexed text and his tentative chapter-by-chapter translations. Now we have his 1500 page magnum opus. De Rachewiltz has mastered the secondary literature in all the relevant languages including Mongolian and even Hungarian, and this work is really the culmination of a century and a half of work by dozens of scholars. At $214 almost nobody can afford this 1500-page set, but every serious research library should have it. Perhaps a condensed popular edition will also be published soon.
