Edited with authority by the influential and respected Stephen Chan, this unique collection of essays gathers together for the first time both African and Chinese perspectives on China's place in Africa.
'Is China moral in Africa? Stephen Chan's richly nuanced new book answers this question through his own burnished prose and by drawing together an exceptional group of Chinese and African co-authors. Chan leads them - and us - deftly across a map layered with shared history, legends, and the clash of cultures.' - Deborah Brautigam, Professor and Director, International Development Program, Johns Hopkins University/SAIS. 'Stephen Chan provide a look at what drives Beijing's policy in Africa through this refreshing collection of contributions by non-Western scholars. This is a well-edited, crisp compilation of essays that provides a welcome contrast to the flood of Western academic writings on China in Africa over the last decade.' - Alex Vines OBE, Research Director, Area Studies and International Law, Chatham House
