In his unique blend of history, diplomacy and vivid tales from his overland journey across Europe and Asia, in The Dawn of Eurasia, Portugal’s former Minister for Europe, Bruno Maçães, argues that the best word for the emerging global order is Eurasian. With the publication of his new book, Belt and Road, Maçães reveals himself to be one of the most original and perceptive thinkers on the world’s shifting geopolitics.
Bruno Maçães was the Portuguese Europe Minister from 2013-2015, and is a strategist and academic. He is the author of The Dawn of Eurasia and the forthcoming Belt and Road: The Sinews of Chinese Power.
