Peter Frankopan: The New Silk Roads
Saturday 2 March, 4pm-5pm
Al Ras 1, InterContinental, DFC
“All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to Beijing."
Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, The New Silk Roads will bring the story up to date and provide a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected.
Peter Frankopan looks at the world of 2018 and examines how it is changing and why it matters not only to those in government and business, but also to travellers, parents of newborns, and sports fans - and asks us to re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihood depend.Language: English with Arabic translation
