Comment: I am a college student, using this site as part of a class project. I choose
this site because I wanted to educate myself on something I knew nothing about.
I thought the site had a very nice interface, whose graphics and organization of
material made navigation easy. Small, organized blocks of text are much less
intimidating to read than solid pages of text. Each topic and sub-topic is
separately organized, but very easy to find, in case you need to easily find
something particular. Some key words on the site are linked to pictures offering
examples. I found this very useful, and only wish there could have been more of
it. The site doesn't offer the most extensive information on the subject, but
summarizes the key points. You can educate yourself on all the aspects of
Mongolian rule in China in a short span of time. So, obviously, the only thing
lacking would be more detailed and more referenced information (although there
was quite a bit of referenced information on the site). If you aren't satisfied
with your Mongolian education after perusing this site, you can always go
elsewhere - the site, in fact, helpfully links to other useful sites and books
regarding the specific topics found here. This site is just a taster, and I
think ideal for students first exploring the topic.
