File Name: genghis khan his life and legacy by paul ratchnevsky .zip
Of the making of biographies of Chinggis Khan there seems to be no end. I have eighteen on my own shelves—by no means an exhaustive collection. The author of this most recent life was for long the head of the Department of Political Science at Aligarh Muslim University; and his previous books have been on politics and recent history.

It is a narrative of the rise and influence of Genghis Khan and his successors, and their influence on European civilization. Weatherford provides a different slant on Genghis Khan than has been typical in most Western accounts, attributing positive cultural effects to his rule. In the last section, he reviews the historiography of Genghis Khan in the West and argues that the leader's early portrayal in writings as an "excellent, noble king" changed to that of a brutal pagan during the Age of Enlightenment. In Paul Ratchnevsky wrote about the Khan's knack for forging alliances, his fairness in dividing the spoils, and his patronage of the sciences. Howorth have argued that the Mongol empire contributed to opening up intellectual interactions between China, the Middle East, and Europe.
He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia. After founding the Empire and being proclaimed Genghis Khan an honorary title ascending possibly from the Turkic "tengiz" — sea ,  meaning "the oceanic, universal ruler" , he launched the Mongol invasions that conquered most of Eurasia , reaching as far west as Poland in Europe and the Levant in the Middle East. These campaigns were often accompanied by large-scale massacres of the civilian populations, especially in the Khwarazmian and Western Xia -controlled lands. Because of this brutality, which left millions dead, he is considered by many to have been a brutal ruler. Due to his exceptional military successes, Genghis Khan is often considered to be the greatest conqueror of all time.
I teach a variety of Asian civilization courses, and when we come to the Mongol world empire, students invariably question my credibility. Are you nuts? When we learn about other world conquerors, history books tend to focus on accomplishments. For example, Alexander the Great is credited with bringing the gift of Greek culture to the Asian hinterlands, and Hannibal is praised as a military tactician with a knack for finding the right pachyderm. Chinggis Khan, however, is noted mainly for extreme cruelty. Are we to believe that all of the other famous military leaders of world history accomplished their achievements with minimal loss of human life? In reality, Chinggis Khan shared many positive characteristics of other great conquerors, such as tactical genius, personal charisma, and an astute ability to use propaganda.

Ocker shows how Klenkok was regarded highly as a theologian by his younger contemporaries but then was largely forgotten after his death. His one claim to later fame was his ongoing attack on the Sachsenspiegel as the basis of Saxon law. This brought Klenkok notoreity, threats against his life, and conflict - not only with secular authorities such as the city council of Magdeburg, but also with such clerics as Walter Kerlinger, the powerful Dominican inquisitor, and Herbord of Spangenburg, a member of an Erfurt chapter and Erfurt city scribe.

The Mongol empire was practically as large as the British Empire, and lasted nearly as long. Spanning Eurasia from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, it catalyzed the exchange of ideas across vast differences of history and culture, and the thesis of this book is that some of these ideas like religious freedom and technologies like printing, or gunpowder were imported into Europe and formed the basis for the Renaissance. In terms of sheer delight in the narrative, no one has told Genghis Khan 's story as effectively.

Единственное, что нам нужно, - осуществить такую подмену. Сьюзан сочла его план безукоризненным. Вот он - истинный Стратмор. Он задумал способствовать распространению алгоритма, который АНБ с легкостью взломает. - Полный и всеобщий доступ, - объяснял Стратмор.
Мимо стремительно проплыла каталка. Беккер успел отскочить в сторону и окликнул санитара. - Dоnde esta el telefono.
Сьюзан на экране тянулась к нему, плача и смеясь, захлестнутая волной эмоций. Вот она вытерла слезы. - Дэвид… я подумала… Оперативный агент Смит усадил Беккера на сиденье перед монитором. - Он немного сонный, мадам. Дайте ему минутку прийти в .
- Мидж снова оказалась права. - Идиот! - в сердцах воскликнула. - Ты только посмотри. Сквозь строй дважды отверг этот файл. Линейная мутация.
Сьюзан в ужасе смотрела на экран. Внизу угрожающе мигала команда: ВВЕДИТЕ КЛЮЧ Вглядываясь в пульсирующую надпись, она поняла. Вирус, ключ, кольцо Танкадо, изощренный шантаж… Этот ключ не имеет к алгоритму никакого отношения, это противоядие. Ключ блокирует вирус. Она много читала о таких вирусах - смертоносных программах, в которые встроено излечение, секретный ключ, способный дезактивировать вирус.
Я хочу уничтожить все следы Цифровой крепости до того, как мы откроем двери. Сьюзан неохотно кивнула.
