The Silk Roads: A New History of the World

by Peter Frankopan - £10.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781408839997 | ISBN 10: 1408839997

The sun is setting on the Western world. Slowly but surely, the direction in which the world spins has reversed: where for the last five centuries the globe turned westwards on its axis, it now turns to the east...
 
For centuries, fame and fortune were to be found in the west in the New World of the Americas. Today, it is the east which calls out to those in search of riches and adventure. Sweeping right across Central Asia and deep into China and India, a region that once took centre stage is again rising to dominate global politics, commerce and culture.
 
A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is a dazzling exploration of the forces that have driven the rise and fall of empires, determined the flow of ideas and goods and are now heralding a new dawn in international affairs.
