Note: Originally published: 2018 Peter Frankopan explores the connections made by people, trade, disease, war, religion, adventure, science and technology in this extraordinary book about how the east married the west with a remarkable voyage at its heart - the journey along the Silk Roads. From ancient world laws laid down by King Hammurabi and the mighty Persian empire, to terrifying huns, the rise of Europe, two world wars and politics today, the book moves through time and history sewing together the threads from different peoples, empires, and continents into a phenomenal history of the globe.

Book:The new Silk Roads, the present and future of the world:2019 Book
Author: Frankopan, Peter
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2018 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 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. Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today.
