Publisher Comments:

China has now taken Great Britains place as Africas third largest business partner. Where others only see chaos, the Chinese see opportunities. With no colonial past and no political preconditions, China is bringing investment and needed infrastructure to a continent that has been largely ignored by Western companies or nations.

Traveling from Beijing to Khartoum, Algiers to Brazzaville, the authors tell the story of Chinas economic ventures in Africa. What they find is tantamount to a geopolitical earthquake: The possibility that China will help Africa direct its own fate and finally bring light to the so-called “dark continent,” making it a force to be reckoned with internationally.

Synopsis:

The dramatic—and largely unknown—story of the rise of Chinas economic empire in Africa and how it will transform geopolitics

Synopsis:

China Safari tells the extraordinary—and largely unknown—story of the rise of Chinas economic empire in Africa and how it will change the twenty-first century. China is Africas second largest business partner, with trade now at more than $100 billion a year, and growing. Where others see chaos, corruption, and endless civil war, the Chinese see opportunities. But is China starting to repeat the imperial arrogance of earlier colonial powers?
