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 profoundly interconnected world. With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan examines the network of relationships being formed along the Silk Roads today, assessing the global reverberations of continual shifts in the centre of power. This important - and ultimately hopeful - book asks us to reread who we are and where we are in the world.
