The Silk Road is a huge network of arteries and veins, splitting and converging across the breadth of Asia, passing through China, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey, and the most sterile desert on earth: the Taklamakan. This book traces the passage not just of trade and armies, but of ideas, religions and inventions.
