The Silk Roads

The Silk Roads is an entirely fascinating book. It’s extremely readable and covers a huge amount of time (a few hundred B.C. to today) from the perspective of the region of the world between the Mediterranean and the Pacific (mostly focused in Iran and the -stans). Fun and eye-opening, it makes me far more interested in those regions and in exploring eastward from our home in Georgia to see ancient centers of civilization that continue and are coming alive and into themselves again after a few centuries blip of western dominance over them. I enjoyed it from the library and now I’m debating if I should buy the ebook or hardback.
