Product Overview

Is China a 'rogue donor'? Or is China helping the developing world pave a pathway out of poverty? Media reports about huge aid packages, support for pariah regimes, regiments of Chinese labor, and the ruthless exploitation of workers and natural resources in some of the poorest countries in the world have sparked fierce debates. China's tradition of secrecy fuels rumors and speculation. China has ended poverty for hundreds of millions of its own citizens. But what are the risks and opportunities in China's growing embrace of Africa?
This book provides answers. With colorful stories and hard data, Deborah Brautigan portrays the sometimes surprising realities of Chinese economic engagement in Africa. Drawing on three decades of experience China and Africa, and hundreds of new interviews across Africa, China, Europe, and the US, Brautigan's book shines new light on a topic of great interest. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with China's rise, and what it might mean for the challenge of ending poverty in Africa.
