"Provocative reading for students of geopolitical and economic trends looking for a glimpse at the new world to come." --Kirkus

"Masterly mapping out of a new world order. . . . Peter Frankopan has gone up in the world since his bestselling Silk Roads history was published to great acclaim in 2015--and deservedly so." --Justin Marozzi, Evening Standard "Frankopan has written another valuable and idiosyncratic book. He has the gift of perspective--the capacity to see the wood for the trees--which he combines with a Tolstoyan knack for weaving little details into the broader sweep of human affairs." --Jamie Susskind, The Daily Telegraph "Frankopan is a brilliant guide to terra incognita." --Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times "A pacy, bang-up-to-date exploration of how China's commercial and political heft is changing the way the world works." --James Kynge, Financial Times "Frankopan has written as prescient a modern history as possible . . . . [His] skill is that he able to step back a few more paces from the world map and global events than most modern commentators, whilst encouraging us to use history as a way of looking forward than regressing into the past." --Joseph Wilkins, Total Politics "A compelling, accessible account of the shift in global economic power. . . . For anyone with an interest in global politics." --Nicole Abedee, Financial Review

"If you are only going to read one non-fiction book in the coming year, let it be The New Silk Roads by Dr. Frankopan. . . . This book has all the answers and some more." --Qudsia Sajjad, News on Sunday "[D]iverting, eclectic and has serious intent. Its thesis that Eurasia is developing a sense of cohesion, largely powered by China's restless ambition, is a sound one." --Roger Boyes, The Times "Entertaining. . . . Peter Frankopan has a sharp eye for startling facts, and no reader will leave The New Silk Roads with her sense of the state of the world unchanged." --Richard Drayton, Times Literary Supplement

"A state of the world address. . . . Energetic . . . pin-sharp, up-to-date." --Ben East, The National (UAE)
