NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH
The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan
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.
This insightful and original history of the world’s most famous trade route is packed full of colourful characters and new ideas about the development of international relations. A perfect summer read for the history buff.
