The Sunday Times
A new Chinese invasion of Africa has taken place.... Anybody interested in the continent, and in the rise of Chinese power, needs to know what is going on. The editors of this hefty volume have assembled essays by twenty-four academics of a dozen nationalities, who possess exceptional knowledge of China's operations in Africa. Successive chapters address such diverse subjects as the social influence of the 750,000-strong Chinese diaspora in the continent; Chinese medicine; the history of the disastrous Tanzanian railway; and, most important, the progress of Beijing's drive to buy into oil and mineral resources the length and breadth of the continent... an impressive and balanced study of one of the most important developments in the modern world.
