ACMS Library Continues to Grow

Thanks to numerous donations and a robust acquisitions policy supported by the ACMS Library Development Fund, the ACMS Library collection continues to grow at an impressive rate. In August the collection added approximately 75 new books focused on topics relevant to Inner Asian Studies. The library acquired books to complete its set of books written by Owen Lattimore (19 total), and it acquired dozens more such as:
  • The Silent Steppe: the Memoir of a Kazakh Nomad Under Stalin by Mukhamet Shayakhmetov
  • Russia's Steppe Frontier: the Making of a Colonial Empire 1500-1800 by Michael Khodarkovsky
  • Wolf Totem by Jiang Rong
  • The Secret History of the Mongols: A Mongolian Epic Chronicle of the Thirteenth Century Vol 1 & Vol 2 Translated and Commented by Igor de Rachewiltz
  • Reins of Liberation: An Entangled History of Mongolian Independence, Chinese Territoriality, and the Great Power Hegemony, 1911-1950 by Xiaoyuan Liu
