My complaint with this edition of the Secret History -- unarguably the scholarly edition -- is how frequently, in the notes, he'll say 'this issue has been discussed by [insert names] so I won't comment on those lines.' I'm an amateur Mongolist, at home, and for me, that's an intensely frustrating habit.

I prefer the translation of Cleaves, if only perhaps for its greater art. The notes here... I can't call them exhaustive, because of what he leaves out (see above). Detailed, although, I'd venture to say, more at home in linguistics than in culture study. ( )
