The Arab world is rising. Dubai's skyline is jammed with gleaming skyscrapers. Foreign banks are opening in Syria's business districts. Cairo's five-star hotels are filled by Arab holiday makers. Yet, the Arab world isn't rising alone. It is matched by an emerging China. The timing isn't a coincidence. The two are historic powers once connected by one of the world's great trade corridors.

The New Silk Road is a ground-breaking study of the changes taking place. The author uses a mixture of analysis and first-hand accounts from the streets in Beijing, Cairo, Dubai, and Riyadh. Speaking Arabic and Chinese the author offers an unrivalled view of how the Arab world is turning away from the West and rediscovering China. The New Silk Road is essential reading to understanding the changes taking place.
