Stuart Kelter interviews Peter Frankopan, a Professor of Global History at Oxford University with comprehensively wide-ranging interests, including the history and politics of the Mediterranean, Russia, the Middle East, ancient Persia and modern Iran, Central Asia, and China. Peter often writes for the international press and is the author of The First Crusade: The Call from the East, The Silk Roads: a New History of the World, and The New Silk Roads: The Future and Present of the World, which have been translated into forty languages, become international best-sellers, and garnered multiple, prestigious awards. His latest book, which is the subject of today’s interview, is The Earth Transformed: An Untold History, an environmental history of both the human and natural past, from billions of years ago until the present, across the entire planet.
