A special illustrated edition of the New York Times bestselling The Silk Roads, a stunningly original world history.
The adult book The Silk Roads is an international sensation, hitting IndieBound and New York Times bestseller lists and called “popular history at its most invigorating” (New York Review of Books). Now, this beautifully illustrated edition brings this fascinating world history to a younger audience.
The Silk Roads are where trade between China and Europe first took place. Using this starting point, Frankopan presents a sprawling and comprehensive history.
From ancient world laws laid down by King Hammurabi and the mighty Persian empire, to terrifying huns, two world wars and politics today, The Silk Roads moves through time and place, sewing together threads from different people, empires and continents to explain how the world became what it is today.
