Item description for Flexibility and Limitation in Steppe Formations: The Kerait Khanate and Chinggis Khan (Ottoman Empire and Its Heritage, V. 15) by Isenbike Togan...
This volume examines the circumstances that brought about the rise of the Mongolian Empire. Twelfth-century Asia and the tribal politics of Inner Asia are examined on macro and micro levels. The study concentrates on the Keraits, one of the most powerful tribal peoples of Inner Asia during Chinggis Khan's early rise to power and one of the greatest losers in the ensuing political realignment. The Kerait, who gave rise to the legend of Prester John, are studied as a symbol of Inner Asian tribal world. In contrast to models of domination, this work portrays a competitive environment involving both conflict and coexistance. Focusing on power, its limitations and its transformation, we trace the emergence and consolidation of Chinggis Khan's authority within this environment of coexistance, shifting alliances and competition.
