Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suppose it was the phrase "Mongol Awakening" that grated on me in particular.  A lot of the stuff they are credited for in these excerpts were really generic Asian civilization, which had its own ebb and flow and happened to reach a high point (in some ways) during the brief window of Mongol supremacy, or were particular innovations of the Song Dynasty that were exported by the Mongols.
