Silk Road to Ruin HC

Ted Rall
Ted Rall

Part graphic novel travelogue, part tongue-in-cheek travel guide, here are the adventures of caustic cartoonist Rall in the wild and woolly central Asian countries; a powder keg sitting on tomorrow's oil.

Combining articles with comics chapters, this volume relates his experiences re-tracing the old legendary Silk Road starting with the sublime history of China and ending in the absurdity of the petty dictatorships of the “The Stans” where Rall had the temerity - or was it blustery stupidity? - to go back, including once with a group of listeners to his radio show, on a dare.

It’s exotic adventure, satire and a fun way to find out more about a part of the world that looms in importance with its immense reserves of oil. Plus Ted Rall really annoys a certain brand of politicians, which is never a bad thing! This should appeal to those of us who enjoyed Ted's To Afghanistan and Back.
