Review and Analysis (Volume 1)

Edited by: Zhang Hongming

Contributions by: Sun Xiao, Luo Liangliang, Xu Mengqi

In the West, many influential government leaders and academic think-tanks have joined the mainstream media in accusing China of 'neo-colonialism' in Africa. This book presents China's case for its involvement in Africa: a relationship that is having an enormous impact on the continent and elsewhere. The cultural and historical links between China and African countries are explored, and the shared challenges of development are examined. The book discusses how China's relationship with modern Africa is based upon the founding principles of the People's Republic of China, with case studies provided on China's relations with key African countries, such as Sudan. China - Africa Relations: Review and Analysis (Volume 1) will appeal to anyone trying to get a balanced view of this discussion. It argues that China has much to offer Africa in terms or financial and technological resources, along with the experiences of emerging from poverty.
