The remote vastness of Mongolia has always been a mystery to most Westerners -- no less so in the twentieth century. It is perhaps the most intriguing of the post-communist "transition" societies.

This volume examines Mongolia's history over the past century, embracing not only Mongolia proper but also Mongol communities in Russia and China. It is based on new archival research and the latest fieldwork, and includes contributions from the world's top experts, including four authors from Mongolia and others from Japan, Russia, Taiwan, Great Britain, and the United States.
