Beschreibung

The No. 1 Sunday Times and international bestseller - a major reassessment of world history in light of the economic and political renaissance in the re-emerging east.

A Sunday Times Book of the Decade

'Magnificent' Sunday Times

'Immensely entertaining ... so ambitious, so detailed, so fascinating' The Times

For centuries, fame and fortune were to be found in the west - in the New World of the Americas. Today, it is the east which calls out to those in search of riches and adventure. Sweeping right across Central Asia and deep into China and India, a region that once took centre stage is again rising to dominate global politics, commerce and culture.

A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is a dazzling exploration of the forces that have driven the rise and fall of empires, determined the flow of ideas and goods and are now heralding a new dawn in international affairs.

Peter Frankopan is Professor of Global History at Oxford University where he is also Senior Research Fellow at Worcester College and Director at the Centre for Byzantine Research. He was Schiff Scholar at Jesus College, Cambridge, and Senior Scholar at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He has been Stanley J. Seeger Fellow at Princeton, Scaliger Visiting Professor at Leiden and Presidential Scholar at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. His revised translation of The Alexiad by Anna Komnene was published by Penguin Classics in 2009. He is the author of The First Crusade: The Call from the East (2012) and The Silk Roads: A New History of the World (2015).

The history of „the East“, or the history of non-western countries respectively, tends to get omitted from “our” historiography. Countries outside the western culture group are usually only mentioned if they’re in some way relevant to our own history. This euro-centric way of thinking is wearisome, as countless fascinating developments and entanglements get lost through it, and those are the most fun in my opinion. This book tells of one of, if not THE biggest connective network in global history: The Silk Roads. You can imagine how much fun this book was to me. The narrative style is charming, as it reads more like a story than a history book. It’s not just information after information. Connections are interwoven, the writing reads fluidly and the author prioritises explaining how things came to progress the way they did, rather than overloading the text with too much year dates or details. The book also focuses less on war or military history and more on trade and intercultural connections. A welcome alternation, as war generally never changes. If you have an interest in global history, and you love grasping connections and discovering how one thing influenced another, “The Silk Roads” will delight you. I am, at least. The book is thick (even though it is probably middle-range by the standard of history books), but it captures you from the very first page, due to both the fascinating topic as well as the writing style of the author. All in all a pleasure to read!
