Reviews

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 *
I enjoyed The New Silk Roads. I learnt a great deal about recent developments in Central Asia and elsewhere. Frankopan is a brilliant guide to terra incognita -- Niall Ferguson * Sunday Times *
The book is diverting, 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 *
Absorbing ... One of the slightly dizzying effects of reading this book is realising the sheer amount of change that has taken place globally in just three years * Irish Times *
Peter Frankopan has written as prescient a modern history as possible ... Frankopan's 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 -- Total Politics
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 * News on Sunday Pakistan *
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 * Daily Telegraph *
Peter Frankopan's surprise 2015 bestseller The Silk Roads was a gripping world history that centred on the east. His follow-up The New Silk Roads takes the story right up to the present, as a resurgent China seeks to recreate the old trade routes -- Books of the Year * Prospect *
Superb -- Amol Rajan * BBC *
An entertaining and carefully researched account of a new Chinese chapter in global history, and one where it finally makes sense to see Eurasia, with Europe at one end and China at the other, as a single connected whole * Spectator *
Filled with an avalanche of remarkable facts ... Peter Frankopan is on a mission to show that the world is no longer all about Europe and the West * Het Financieele Dagblad NL *
Many books have been written that claim to be "A New History of the World". This one fully deserves the title...so ambitious, so detailed and so fascinating -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads' * The Times *
Brilliant and fearless ... This is history on a grand scale -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads', William Dalrymple
This invigorating and profound book has enough storytelling to excite the reader and enough fresh scholarship to satisfy the intellect -- Praise for 'The Silk Roads', Bettany Hughes
