Writing prompt: the core thesis of Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World , by Jack Weatherford, is that Genghis Khans achievements can be understood as having laid the foundations of the political, commercial, and military institutions of our modern society. Based on your reading of the book, do you believe that Weatherford has successfully proven his case? Do you agree that the modern world, as we know it, would not exist without Genghis Khan? As part of your discussion, I would also like you to reflect on the question of how you define the modern world? What is it that makes our world modern, exactly? Your paper must make a clear and explicit argument, and it must provide at least 3 distinct examples from Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World to support your argument that, yes you agree with Weatherford, or no, you do not agree with Weatherford, as supporting evidence.
