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

11 h 31 min
From Silk to Silicon tells the story of who these men and women were, what they did, how they did it, and how their achievements continue to shape our world today. They include: Genghis Khan, who united east and west by conquest and by opening new trade routes built on groundbreaking transportation and management innovations. Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who arose from oppression to establish the most powerful bank the world has seen. Cyrus Field, who became the father of global communications by leading the effort to build the transatlantic telegraph, the forerunner to global radio, TV, and the worldwide Internet. Margaret Thatcher, whose controversial policies opened the gusher of substantially free markets that linked economies across borders. Andy Grove, a Hungarian refugee from the Nazis who built the company—Intel—that figured out how to manufacture complex computer chips on a mass, commercial scale.

Through these stories Jeffrey E. Garten finds the common links between these figures and probes critical questions. From Silk to Silicon is an essential book to understanding the past—and the future—of the most powerful force of our times.
