There are many parallels between the Mongols of the 13th century and the United States today. Students in Dr. Edward Vajda's Nomads of Asia course learn about many of these parallels, including the fact that the Mongols were the lone superpower in their time, allowed freedom of religion and established the world's first transcontinental free trade zone. There are even military parallels between the Mongol Empire and modern America. Focusing on such unexpected similarities makes the course relevant and stimulating.
