The New Silk Roads: The Present and Future of the World [9781526608246]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A brand new book from the Sunday Times and internationally bestselling author of The Silk Roads

`Masterly mapping out of a new world order' - Evening Standard

Revised and updated edition The New Silk Roads takes a fresh look at the relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the ancient trade routes today.

The world is changing dramatically and 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, where ties are being strengthened and mutual cooperation established.

This prescient contemporary history provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected.

Following the Silk Roads eastwards from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, Peter Frankopan assesses the global reverberations of continual shifts in the centre of power - all too often absent from headlines in the west.

The New Silk Roads asks us to re-examine who we are and where we stand in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihoods depend. The Silk Roads, a major reassessment of world history, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.
AUTHOR: Peter Frankopan is Professor of Global History at Oxford University where he is also Senior Research Fellow at Worcester College. The Silk Roads: A New History of the World was published by Bloomsbury in 2015.
