Description
James Millward's new book, The Silk Road: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2013) is both an introduction to, and provocative argument about, the nature and significance of trans-Eurasian exchanges in world history. Its chapters examine biological, technological and artistic exchanges against the background of Central Eurasian history, the impact of nomad empires, and continuing resonances of the silk road in international
relations and popular culture today.

Join Professor Millward for a discussion of his book followed by a short reception.

“As befits the title of the series, The Silk Road: A Very Short Introduction succeeds in giving the general audience a view of world history through the lens of biology, technology, commerce, and culture. A must read for any aspiring enlightened global citizen.”
--Yo-Yo Ma, Grammy award-winning recording artist; artistic director, The Silk Road Project.

This event is cosponsored by the Mortara Center for International Studies, the Asian Studies Department and CERES.
