'The Secret History of the Mongols' placed at Library of Congress

An English edition of “Secret History of the Mongols” audio book was placed in the Library of Congress, which is the research library that officially serves the United States Congress and is the national library and the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States, on March 2.

“Secret History of the Mongols” is a chronicle written in the 13th century and is the most important and the oldest medieval Mongolian text. The book covers the origins of the ancient Mongolian people, the rise to power and the reign of Genghis Khan. Written from a Mongolian perspective, unlike to most other media sources on the Mongol Empire, the work is an invaluable record of Mongolian legends, oral and written histories.
