Summary
"A revelatory vision of the world today, as it is seen by the rising powers of the East. "All roads used to lead to Rome. Now they lead to Beijing." So argues Peter Frankopan in this timely and visionary new book about the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically before our very eyes. In this age of Brexit and Trump, the West is buffeted by the tides of isolation and fragmentation. Yet to the East, this is a moment of optimism as a new network of relationships takes shape along the routes of the ancient trade routes. In The New Silk Roads, Peter Frankopan takes us on an eye-opening journey through the region, from China's breathtaking infrastructure investments to the flood of trade deals among Central Asian republics to the growing rapprochement between Turkey and Russia. This important book asks us to put aside our preconceptions and see the world from a new -- and ultimately hopeful -- perspective"--
