"Provocative reading for students of geopolitical and economic trends looking for a glimpse at the new world to come."
International Praise for The New Silk Roads:
“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
“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.”
–Jamie Susskind, The Daily Telegraph
“Frankopan is a brilliant guide to terra incognita.”
–Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times
“A pacy, bang-up-to-date exploration of how China’s commercial and political heft is changing the way the world works.”
–James Kynge, Financial Times
“Frankopan has written as prescient a modern history as possible … [His] 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.”
–Joseph Wilkins, Total Politics
“A compelling, accessible account of the shift in global economic power... For anyone with an interest in global politics.”
–Nicole Abedee, Financial Review
“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.”
–Qudsia Sajjad, News on Sunday
"[D]iverting, 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
"A state of the world address… Energetic…pin-sharp, up-to-date."
–Ben East, The National (UAE)
