The Silk Roads : A New History of the World Paperback


The revised edition of the No. 1 Sunday Times and international bestseller with a new epilogue, covering recent world events, and additional illustrative material`Immensely entertaining ... so ambitious, so detailed, so fascinating' The Times For centuries, fame and fortune were to be found in the west - in the New World of the Americas.

Today, it is the east which calls out to those in search of riches and adventure.

Sweeping right across Central Asia and deep into China and India, a region that once took centre stage is again rising to dominate global politics, commerce and culture. A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is a dazzling exploration of the forces that have driven the rise and fall of empires, determined the flow of ideas and goods and are now heralding a new dawn in international affairs. This up-to-date edition of the international bestseller includes an epilogue examining recent world events, along with new maps and illustrations.
