THE NEW SILK ROADS: THE PRESENT AND FUTURE OF THE WORLD

By Peter Frankopan

Synopsis

The world is changing dramatically, and the 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 contemporary history provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected. Following the Silk Roads from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, Peter Frankopan assesses the continual shifts in the centre of power - all too often absent from headlines in the west.
