This epilogue discusses the impact of infidel Mongol rule on the Islamic world in the longer term, down to the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries. It begins with an analysis of the more direct legacy of infidel Mongol rule: the survival of what might be termed a ‘Mongol imperial culture’, which involved new Chinggisid concepts of legitimacy, new techniques of government, and a persistent allegiance to Mongol customary law (the Yasa). It then considers other consequences of the Mongol expansion, including the Turkicization of nomadic Mongols and Turks, the strengthening of external Muslim states through immigration from Mongol-occupied territories; the spread of the Islamic faith, and the emergence of new Muslim ethnicities. The chapter also examines the the relationship between the Mongol conquests and the genesis of the Black Death, through the integration of the whole of Eurasia (including the entire Dār al-Islām as far west as Spain) within a single disease zone.
