Genghis Khan and the quest for God : how the world's greatest conqueror gave us religious freedom by Jack Weatherford( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history the world's greatest conquerors have made their mark not just on the battlefield, but in the societies they have transformed. Genghis Khan conquered by arms and bravery, but he ruled by commerce and religion. He created the world's greatest trading network and drastically lowered taxes for merchants, but he knew that if his empire was going to last, he would need something stronger and more binding than trade. He needed religion. And so, unlike the Christian, Taoist and Muslim conquerors who came before him, he gave his subjects freedom of religion. Genghis lived in the 13th century, but he struggled with many of the same problems we face today: How should one balance religious freedom with the need to reign in fanatics? Can one compel rival religions--driven by deep seated hatred--to live together in peace? A celebrated anthropologist whose bestselling Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World radically transformed our understanding of the Mongols and their legacy, Jack Weatherford has spent eighteen years exploring areas of Mongolia closed until the fall of the Soviet Union and researching The Secret History of the Mongols, an astonishing document written in code that was only recently discovered. He pored through archives and found groundbreaking evidence of Genghis's influence on the founding fathers and his essential impact on Thomas Jefferson. As hard as it is to believe, we owe our doctine of religious freedom in part to a distant nomad who forged the world's greatest empire in a trail of blood."--Jacket
Savages and civilization : who will survive? by Jack Weatherford( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should civilization falter, Weatherford argues, those tribal peoples whom civilization once attempted to envelop may be the only ones capable of salvaging it. If we continue to destroy their culture, we may lose the knowledge that helped us survive the millions of years before agriculture and cities, before civilization. Those connections to the past must be preserved - and this may be the last chance to do so. As a result, Savages and Civilization will not only change how history and society are viewed, it will be sure to alter your own self-perception as well

15 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Wir treten nun ein in das Zeitalter des Geldes' prognostiziert der amerikanische Anthropologe (vgl. BA 7/95) im letzten Satz seiner 'kurzen', doch weltumspannenden, an einzelnen Epochen ausgerichteten 3000-jährigen Geschichte des Geldes. Er meint damit die Ära des elektronischen Geldes und der virtuellen Währung, die als revolutionärer Wechsel auf die Zeitalter des Bargeldes (erste Münzprägung in Lydien) und des Papiergeldes (Einführung des Bankensystems und der Börse) folgt. Oft breit angelegt vor allem in ethnologischen Details, fundiert mit Quellenangaben, unterhaltsam und anregend in der Darstellung, z.B. im Hinweis auf Goethes 'Faust', bietet Weatherford ein lebendiges Panorama zur Währungs-Wende
