This is a study of Central Asian history from Chinggis to the present, with reference to relations with China, Russia, India and Western Europe and to wider themes of world history. An introductory chapter defines Central Asia in time, place and ecology. The following chapters relate Central Asia history to the eight world institutions, whose development, it is argued, constitute world history in the proper sense. This is the sequel to "China in World History".
