'We are now fortunate to have Christopher Atwood's magisterial account of the history of the IMPRP, from its birth in 1925, including its background and aftermath, based on the rich archival materials in Mongolia, most of which have been made accessible for the first time after the democratisation of Mongolia in 1990, and cross-checking materials published in China and Russia.'
