The Roman Empire and the Silk Routes: The Ancient World Economy & the Empires of Parthia, Central Asia & Han China - Raoul McLaughlin The Roman Empire and the Indian Ocean: The Ancient World Economy and the Kingdoms of Africa, Arabia and India - Dr Raoul McLaughlin

Has anyone read anything by Raoul McLaughlin? 


I'm tempted by his book on the Silk Roads but reviews seem to be mixed, and I really want to avoid another book that disappoints as much as the much-hyped Frankopan one.
