[This text] takes readers through nine centuries of history often punctuated by conquests and conflict---from the rise of Yorimoto, Japan's first shogun, who stripped the Japanese emperor of his power; to the ruthless campaigns of Genghis Khan's Mongol warriors in China; to the mutiny of Korean general Yi Songgye, who proclaimed himself founder of a new dynasty. Despite battles and political clashes, the peoples of Asia created large, stable states that brought eras of peace and prosperity. At the same time, Confucianism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam attracted believers across the ... continent. The ... peoples of Asia found much to share, trading goods and spices and dodging bandits on land and sea. More important that the exchange of products was the exchange of ideas and inventions such as gunpowder and paper. -Back cover.
