The Silk Roads: A New His­tory of the World

BBC History Magazine - - Miscellany -

From the days of King Ham­murabi (c1810 BC– c1750 BC) through to the world of to­day when China is in the as­cen­dency, the Silk Roads have been key to hu­man­ity’s shared story. The way these trad­ing routes have en­cour­aged deep con­nec­tions be­tween east and west – forged through trade, war or sim­ply travel for ad­ven­ture – runs through Peter Frankopan’s ac­claimed his­tory of the world.
