Críticas:

Many books have been written which claim to be "A New History of the World". This one fully deserves the title.It is difficult, in a short review, to do justice to a book so ambitious, so detailed and so fascinating as this one (Gerald DeGroot The Times 2015-08-08)

A book that roves as widely as the geography it describes, encompassing worlds as far removed as those of Herodotus and Saddam Hussein, Hammurabi and Hitler.It is a tribute to Frankopan's scholarship and mastery of sources in multiple languages that he is as sure-footed on the ancient world as he is on the medieval and modern (Justin Marozzi Sunday Times 2015-08-09)

My book of the year: history on a grand scale, with a sweep of ambition that is rare ... A remarkable book on many levels, and one that anyone would have been proud to write: a proper historical epic of dazzling range, ambition and achievement (William Dalrymple Observer)

The most illuminating book of the year ... A healthy antidote to Eurocentric accounts of history (Books of the Year Times Literary Supplement)

Splendid ... tightly researched ... invigorating and profound with enough storytelling to excite the reader and enough fresh scholarship to satisfy the intellect...charismatic and essential (Bettany Hughes Daily Telegraph 2015-08-15)

A rare book that makes you question your assumptions about the world (Wall Street Journal)

Dazzlingly good (Evening Standard)

Based on astonishingly wide and deep reading and in all areas draws on the latest research... It is full of vivid and recondite details (Independent 2015-08-15)

Full of intriguing insights and fascinating details (Observer)

With extraordinary erudition and a vivid style, he takes us on a dazzling tour of these parts from the rise of the first empires right through to the present (Open (Weekly))

Reseña del editor:

For centuries, fame and fortune was 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 adventure and riches. The region stretching from eastern Europe and sweeping right across Central Asia deep into China and India, is taking centre stage in international politics, commerce and culture - and is shaping the modern world. This region, the true centre of the earth, is obscure to many in the English-speaking world. Yet this is where civilization itself began, where the world's great religions were born and took root. The Silk Roads were no exotic series of connections, but networks that linked continents and oceans together. Along them flowed ideas, goods, disease and death. This was where empires were won - and where they were lost. As a new era emerges, the patterns of exchange are mirroring those that have criss-crossed Asia for millennia. The Silk Roads are rising again. A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is an important account of the forces that have shaped the global economy and the political renaissance in the re-emerging east.

Descripción Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The sun is setting on the Western world. Slowly but surely, the direction in which the world spins has reversed: where for the last five centuries the globe turned westwards on its axis, it now turns to the east.For centuries, fame and fortune was to be found in the west in the New World of the Americas.
