The New Silk Roads

 15.00

By Peter Frankopan

For centuries, fame and fortune were to be found in the west – in the New World of the Americas. Today, it is the east which calls out to those in search of riches and adventure. Sweeping right across Central Asia and deep into China and India, a region that once took centre stage is again rising to dominate global politics, commerce and culture.

A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is an exploration of the forces that have driven the rise and fall of empires and determined the flow of ideas and goods. This book argues that the region is on the verge of a new dawn in international affairs.

 

 

The New Silk Roads

With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today. This book assesses the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power – all too often absent from headlines in the West. This important book asks us to re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihoods depend.
