The Cambridge History of Inner Asia is an ongoing series of history books published by Cambridge University Press (CUP) covering the early and modern history of Inner Asian peoples.

The first volume titled "The Cambridge History of Early Inner Asia" was edited by Denis Sinor, a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Central Asian Studies at the Department of Central Eurasian Studies at Indiana University in 1987 and published in 1990.[1] This volume introduces the geographical setting of Central Asia and follows its history from the palaeolithic era to the rise of the Mongol Empire in the thirteenth century.

The series' second volume, The Cambridge History of Inner Asia: The Chinggisid Age, was published in 2009. Similar to the previous volume, a large group of international experts contributed to each chapter. This volume centres on the history and legacy of the Mongol World Empire founded by Genghis Khan and its successor states, including its impact upon the modern world.[2]

The Cambridge History of Inner Asia: The Modern Age is set to be released in the near future.[3]
