ByMoreThis is a history of the peoples of Manchuria over 15 millennia. During much of this period Manchurian tribes lived a nomadic existence fighting with each other and, occasionally, with their more powerful neighbours, the Mongols and the Chinese. By 1685, this picture had changed dramatically: the tribes had united and conquered an empire incorporating the whole of China and Mongolia, to which a century later they had added Tibet and Eastern Turkistan. How and why they did so, and with what consequence to themselves and to their subjects form the main themes of this book.
