Is American hegemony ending? Who were the world powers in Europe and Asia before the USA existed; how has their history shaped today’s trillion dollar, Chinese 21st century Silk Roads Initiatives? Driven by the interests and contributions of group members we will explore the history, personalities, trade, art, science, economics and geopolitics of the countries along the Silk Roads.
