I love Weatherford's book on Genghis and regularly assign pieces to my freshman classes. It's one of the best pieces I've found to take them out of their comfortable, Western-centered, world view and make them appreciate the validity of other cultures. Sitting on my 'to read' pile at the moment is his follow up book, The Secret History of the Mongol Queens: How the Daughters of Genghis Khan Rescued His Empire. Mongol women had important, powerful roles in their society, so it promises to be a very interesting read.
