The New Silk Roads: The Present and Future of the World [9781526607423]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to Beijing.' When 'The Silk Roads' was published in 2015, it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us to look at the past from a different perspective.

'The New Silk Roads' brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically. Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, 'The New Silk Roads' provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected.

In an age of Brexit and Trump, the themes of isolation and fragmentation permeating the Western world stand in sharp contrast to events along the Silk Roads since 2015, where ties have been strengthened and mutual cooperation established.

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, assessing the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power - all too often absent from headlines in the West.

This important - and ultimately hopeful - 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 livelihood depend.
AUTHOR: Peter Frankopan is Professor of Global History at Oxford University where is also Senior Research Fellow at Worcester College, Oxford and Director the Centre for Byzantine Research. He was Schiff Scholar at Jesus College, Cambridge, and was Senior Scholar at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

His revised translation of The Alexiad by Anna Komnene was published in 2009 and The Silk Roads: A New History of the World was published in 2015.
