♥ Book Title : The Steel Woman of the Silk Road
☯ Full Synopsis : "Laila is full of dreams and wonder as she spends her childhood chasing the azure blue skies of her hometown in Afghanistan. But with the onset of womanhood, Laila is forced to flee her hometown and abandon the promise of an education in an effort to survive the emergence to power of the Taliban in post-Soviet Afghanistan. Laila and the women around her must use ingenuity, strength, and a fierce resolve to survive the daily ministrations of a society seeking to keep them in the dark. Can Laila fight the drug abuse around her and find personal autonomy in a setting of forced docility? Through the atrocities committed against these women and the strength these same women must exhibit in order to survive, we see with poetic and searing insight the realities of everyday life: the daily lives, loves, and perseverance of truly remarkable women."Article| Aqila Khaterzai Karimi| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Journeys on the Silk Road
☯ Full Synopsis : "When a Chinese monk broke into a hidden cave in 1900, he uncovered one of the world’s great literary secrets: a time capsule from the ancient Silk Road. Inside, scrolls were piled from floor to ceiling, undisturbed for a thousand years. The gem within was the Diamond Sutra of AD 868. This key Buddhist teaching, made 500 years before Gutenberg inked his press, is the world’s oldest printed book. The Silk Road once linked China with the Mediterranean. It conveyed merchants, pilgrims and ideas. But its cultures and oases were swallowed by shifting sands. Central to the Silk Road’s rediscovery was a man named Aurel Stein, a Hungarian-born scholar and archaeologist employed by the British service. Undaunted by the vast Gobi Desert, Stein crossed thousands of desolate miles with his fox terrier Dash. Stein met the Chinese monk and secured the Diamond Sutra and much more. The scroll’s journey—by camel through arid desert, by boat to London’s curious scholars, by train to evade the bombs of World War II—merges an explorer’s adventures, political intrigue, and continued controversy. The Diamond Sutra has inspired Jack Kerouac and the Dalai Lama. Its journey has coincided with the growing appeal of Buddhism in the West. As the Gutenberg Age cedes to the Google Age, the survival of the Silk Road’s greatest treasure is testament to the endurance of the written word."Article| Joyce Morgan| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Silk Road Trap, How China's Trade Ambitions Challenge Europe
☯ Full Synopsis : "For almost two decades, China has claimed that its expanding economy benefits Europe, stimulating European growth, exports, and employment. But the reality is not so clear-cut. Whilst individual companies may have profited from China’s economic rise,unbalanced trade with China has actually cost Europe over 1.4 trillion euros in the last ten years as well as undermining its political influence. China’s monumental infrastructural project, the Belt And Road Initiative or New Silk Road as it has come to be known - is set to make this situation even worse. The Silk Road Trap is the first book to expose just how risky this uneven partnership is for Europe. In it, leading expert on Asian affairs Jonathan Holslag, argues that Europe must reduce its reliance on China and work on building a stronger and more sustainable European economic model. By revealing the political aspirations and economic strategy behind the new Silk Road, he lays out its implications for specific European industries, from steel over aircraft to robots. Holslag, though critical of China, does not, however, make the case for confrontational, Trumpian protectionism. Instead, he posits that the new Silk Road need not ensnare Europe; it offers the continent a unique opportunity to transition from a future "made in China" to one that is "made in Europe"."Article| Jonathan Holslag| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The New Silk Road
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 2013 China's Belt and Road initiative reawakened public attention to the issue of trade and transport. At the same time it stoked fears about China's true intentions. It was easy for critics to conjure images of a tide of Chinese steel and cement spilling over the Eurasian continent. But what if China were not alone in funding new infrastructure and in facilitating trade, nor the first? Richard T. Griffiths explores the construction of new trading networks along the route of the ancient Silk Road between Europe and China. His book answers the question: who has been building the new Silk Road? This important book contributes to a more informed and better grounded distinction between what is ?real? and what is ?dream? in the Chinese BRI rhetoric, and provides us with an excellent platform to a deeper understanding of current and future Silk Road narratives.?Claes G. Alvstam, Professor Emeritus Economic Geography, University of Gothenburg."Article| Richard T Griffiths| Statement ..."
