Peter Frankopan is a Professor of Global History at Oxford University, Director at the Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research and an author.

Today Peter offers an alternative view which identifies the rapid rate of change seen in Asia over the last few years which could change not only the financial and commercial but the cultural focus of the globe.
