From the Sunday Times and internationally bestselling author of The Silk Roads


'Masterly mapping out of a new world order' - Evening Standard


The New Silk Roads - a brand new book by Peter Frankopan - takes a fresh look at the network of relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today.

The world is changing dramatically and in an age of Brexit and Trump, the themes of isolation and fragmentation permeating the western world stand in sharp contrast to events along the Silk Roads, where ties have been strengthened and mutual cooperation established.

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 world that is profoundly interconnected. In this prescient contemporary history, Peter Frankopan assesses the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power - all too often absent from headlines in the west.

This important - and ultimately hopeful - book asks us to reread who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihoods depend.


The Silk Roads, a major reassessment of world history, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

Review:

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)

I enjoyed The New Silk Roads. I learnt a great deal about recent developments in Central Asia and elsewhere. Frankopan is a brilliant guide to terra incognita (Niall Ferguson Sunday Times)

The book is diverting, 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)

Absorbing . One of the slightly dizzying effects of reading this book is realising the sheer amount of change that has taken place globally in just three years (Irish Times)

Peter Frankopan has written as prescient a modern history as possible . Frankopan's 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 (Total Politics)

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 (News on Sunday Pakistan)

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 (Daily Telegraph)

Peter Frankopan's surprise 2015 bestseller The Silk Roads was a gripping world history that centred on the east. His follow-up The New Silk Roads takes the story right up to the present, as a resurgent China seeks to recreate the old trade routes (Books of the Year Prospect)

Superb (Amol Rajan BBC)

An entertaining and carefully researched account of a new Chinese chapter in global history, and one where it finally makes sense to see Eurasia, with Europe at one end and China at the other, as a single connected whole (Spectator)
