Product description

Review

"Provocative reading for students of geopolitical and economic trends looking for a glimpse at the new world to come."
-Kirkus

International Praise for The New Silk Roads:


"Masterly mapping out of a new world order... Peter Frankopan has gone up in the world since his bestselling Silk Roads history was published to great acclaim in 2015--and deservedly so."
-Justin Marozzi, Evening Standard

"Frankopan has written another valuable and idiosyncratic book. He has the gift of perspective-- the capacity to see the wood for the trees--which he combines with a Tolstoyan knack for weaving little details into the broader sweep of human affairs."
-Jamie Susskind, The Daily Telegraph

"Frankopan is a brilliant guide to terra incognita."
-Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times

"A pacy, bang-up-to-date exploration of how China's commercial and political heft is changing the way the world works."
-James Kynge, Financial Times

"Frankopan has written as prescient a modern history as possible ... [His] skill is that he able to step back a few more paces from the world map and global events than most modern commentators, whilst encouraging us to use history as a way of looking forward than regressing into the past."
-Joseph Wilkins, Total Politics

"A compelling, accessible account of the shift in global economic power... For anyone with an interest in global politics."
-Nicole Abedee, Financial Review

"If you are only going to read one non-fiction book in the coming year, let it be The New Silk Roads by Dr. Frankopan... This book has all the answers and some more."
-Qudsia Sajjad, News on Sunday

"[D]iverting, eclectic and has serious intent. Its thesis that Eurasia is developing a sense of cohesion, largely powered by China's restless ambition, is a sound one."
-Roger Boyes, The Times

"Entertaining. . . . Peter Frankopan has a sharp eye for startling facts, and no reader will leave The New Silk Roads with her sense of the state of the world unchanged"
--Richard Drayton, Times Literary Supplement

"A state of the world address... Energetic...pin-sharp, up-to-date."
-Ben East, The National (UAE) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
