The career and achievements of Chingiz Khan have been of singular interest to both the East and the West. Considered a wonder-worker, his conquests were, as Rome Grouset observed, 'as important a fact for the commerce of the Middle Ages as the discovery of America for the men of the Renaissance'. Gifted with a magnetic personality, penetrating insight, unerring judgement and disarming candour, Chingiz Khan was a strict disciplinarian, a master strategist and a great commander, who marched far ahead of some of the greatest figures of history and out-rivalled the achievements of the all-time great captains of war, Hannibal and Caesar, Alexander and Napoleon. The Great Khan's laurels do not rest on his conquests alone, as he was an equally adept administrative genius. He founded an empire not merely on his name, fame and might but on law and political organization, justice and uninhibited tolerance, far ahead of his times. Professor Syed Anwarul Haque Haqqi was Head of the Department of Political Science at Aligarh Muslim University for fifteen years. He obtained his first Ph.D. in History from Aligarh Muslim University, and a second one in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He has been a Visiting professor to the University of Warsaw (Poland), the Middle East Technical University, Ankara (Turkey), and the University of Kashmir, Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir. Professor Haqqi's publications include Indian Democracy at the Crossroads, Secularism under Siege: The Ayodhya Tragedy-Retrospect and Prospect and Ataturk and India. Professor Haqqi is the founding editor of the Indian Journal of Politics and also the editor of Union-State Relations in India and Democracy, Pluralism and Nation-Building.
