Review

"As befits the title of the series, The Silk Road: A Very Short Introduction succeeds in giving the general audience a view of world history through the lens of biology, technology, commerce, and culture. A must read for any aspiring enlightened global citizen." --Yo-Yo Ma, Grammy award-winning recording artist; artistic director, The Silk Road Project "...offers a deeply informed survey of this storied route, paying attention to the history and legends associated with it, and nicely combining attention to the standard topics, such as the flow of people and goods along it, with a good discussion of its role in the dissemination of artistic practices." -- Jeff Wasserstrom, iLA Review of Books blog
