Personal Project: Communication among Mongolia--Interior China and the Islamic World between the 12th and the 14th Centuries

Valuable historical materials including a lot of information about Mongolia-Interior China and the Islamic World created in the 12th-14th Centuries still remain today. There were many kinds of historical literature there, and composed in many languages. For example, Persian and Arabic literature The Tarikh-i Jahangushay-i JuvainiThe History of The World Conqueror, تاریخ جهانگشای جوینی)and Jāmiʿ al-tawārīkhCompendium of Chronicles جامع التواریخ), Chinese literature History of Yuan (元史),The Shengwu qinzheng lu (聖武親征錄, Emperor Shengwu's conquest wars) ,Mongolian literature The Yuanchao mishi or Mogolian title Monghol-un Nihuca Tobciyan ( Secret history of the Yuan dynasty), Tibetan literature The Hu-lan deb-ther or Tibetan title Deb-ther dmar-po (Red Book) etc. There historical materials are mutually related, that textualism is the most important ways to understand the historical materials. The indefinite information will be textualism and explained theoretically in various ways. A lot of information as defined in the historical materials, and a lot of information are unclear of or uncertain.
