This isn t so much a book in its own right as an updated addendum to Frankopan s The Silk Roads Essentially a long essay or thought piece it reviews recent developments to 2018 in the sphere of global politics and broadly argues that whereas the old Silk Road nations are moving towards collaboration and constructive partnerships the west is fragmenting and isolating think Brexit or Trump s America First war cries Of course Frankopan is nuanced than that Worth a read for a top level view of what s driving the world today

SUMMARY The New Silk Roads The Present and Future of the World

'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 dramaticallyFollowing the Silk Roads eastwards from Europe through to China.
