Genghis Khan: His Conquests, His Empire, His Legacy


Genghis Khan was an illiterate remote tribesman who built an empire larger than North America. His military and administrative concepts were revolutionary but his personality was complex. He was spiritually tolerant and curious about a Chinese mystic, the Pope, and Islam. However, he was paranoid, intolerant, and vicious with matters of loyalty. He was a supreme politician and tactician but was brutal with his application of force. Listen to the a fascinating conversation with author Frank McLynn about his new book, “Genghis Khan: His Conquests, His Empire, His Legacy”. It is a phenomenally researched and comprehensive book about one of history’s most powerful figures. You’ll want to read the book and see how his tactics are still in use today.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
