The golden threads of Frankopan’s classic world history shine anew in this engaging new children’s edition, brought to life by Neil Packer’s fantastically detailed artwork.

Set your sails east with this stunningly original new history of the world. Peter Frankopan, number one bestselling author and historian explores the connections made by people, trade, disease, war, religion, adventure, science and technology in this extraordinary book about how the east married the west with a remarkable voyage at its heart - the journey along the Silk Roads.

From ancient world laws laid down by King Hammurabi and the mighty Persian empire, to terrifying huns, the rise of Europe, two world wars and politics today, The Silk Roads moves through time and history sewing together the threads from different peoples, empires and continents into a phenomenal history of the globe.

With stories from each and every corner of society, Frankopan's magnificent brand new illustrated edition of his award-winning literary triumph The Silk Roads, sumptuously illustrated by Neil Packer, is a must-have world history.
