Samenvatting

Trade paperback. Applies the trade-oriented perspective of history from the 2015 hit }The Silk Roads{ to the political and industrial present, as centres of power continue to shift

'All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to Beijing.' When The Silk Roads was published in 2015, it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us to look at the past from a different perspective. The New Silk Roads brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically. 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 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 since 2015, where ties have been strengthened and mutual cooperation established. With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today, assessing 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 re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihood depend.

Recensie(s)

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 * 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 * 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 * A stimulating primer on modern geopolitics, written with a historian's eye for colour and detail * Daily Telegraph * 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 * Filled with an avalanche of remarkable facts ... Peter Frankopan is on a mission to show that the world is no longer all about Europe and the West * Het Financieele Dagblad NL * Many books have been written that claim to be A New History of the World . This one fully deserves the title...so ambitious, so detailed and so fascinating -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads' * The Times * Brilliant and fearless ... This is history on a grand scale -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads', William Dalrymple This invigorating and profound book has enough storytelling to excite the reader and enough fresh scholarship to satisfy the intellect -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads', Bettany Hughes
