About the Author
Jeffrey Mankoff is a Distinguished Research Fellow at the U.S. National Defense University's Institute for National Strategic Studies, and the author of Russian Foreign Policy: The Return of Great Power Politics.
"Americans have a blind spot--they don't study history. Especially history of other countries and civilizations. Mankoff digs into history to help us understand today's complex geopolitics in Asia. This is history most relevant for today."--John J. Hamre, president and CEO, Center for Strategic and International Studies

"Empires of Eurasia contributes to a discerning, productive discussion of pressing contemporary challenges. Ambitious in scope and depth, this timely, highly readable book will be a foundational text for international relations, area studies and national security curricula for many years to come."--Matthew Rojansky, Director of the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute

"Mankoff brings an extraordinary understanding of history, geography, language, culture, and politics to this sweeping and ambitious book."--James Goldgeier, American University

"In a narrative infused with historical depth and incisive analysis, Jeffrey Mankoff takes the reader through the geopolitics of a region we call Eurasia--still contested by Russia, Turkey, China, and Iran and burdened by old conflicts and contemporary convulsions of great power, imperial, competition. This is a must read to understand the backstory of conflicts from Crimea to Xinjiang."--Fiona Hill, author of There Is Nothing for You Here
