Win Stuff

Win one of five copies of The New Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan, valued at $32.99 each.

When The Silk Roads was published in 2015 it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us 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 what has been happening along the Silk Roads since 2015, where the story has been about deepening ties and trying to work together.

With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships that are 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.
