From the politically unstable Middle East to economically ascendant China, the vast region stretching eastward from the Balkans across the steppe and South Asia has been thrust into the global spotlight in recent years. Peter Frankopan teaches us that to understand what is at stake for the cities and nations built on these intricate trade routes, we must first understand their astounding pasts. It was on the Silk Roads that East and West first encountered each other through trade and conquest, leading to the spread of ideas, cultures, and religions. Now more than ever, Frankopan posits, the fate of the West is inextricably linked to the East.

"Frankopan has written a rare book that makes you question your assumptions about the world." —Wall Street Journal
