From Silk to Silicon: The Story of Globalization Through Ten Extraordinary Lives

By Jeffrey E. Garten

Globalization may be a uniquely modern term, but it’s been brewing for centuries. Through the stories of ten disparate, sometimes obscure figures in history – from Genghis Khan and Margaret Thatcher to Cyrus Field and Andy Grove – author Jeffrey Garten traces the roots of a world that once seemed as vast as the cosmos but is now as close and connected as any small community. From Silk to Silicon is the story of transcendent change and the lessons civilization’s pioneers provide when they dared look to the horizon and beyond.
