Translated from the Russian by Baasan Ragchaa. “The unexpected change in the highest leadership of Mongolia in August 1984 still remains a mystery for many. According to official statements, Yumjaagiin Tsedenbal was relieved from his party and state posts “considering the poor condition of his health, and by his personal agreement.” At the same time, certain circles of Mongolian society maintained a very firm and established opinion that his health was in good condition and that there were no serious grounds for his resignation.

In particular, he uses the work to challenge the conventional view of the imagined decline of Qing-period Mongol historical writing, especially the notion that it solely became a reflection of the state power. Instead, Elverskog shows how Mongol historians in nineteenth-century Ordos were maintain-ing their own vibrant and dynamic tradition. 196 pages.
