Publisher Comments:

JUAN PABLO CARDENAL has been reporting from and about China and the Asia-Pacific region since 2003first as Shanghai correspondent for El Mundo, and later from Singapore and Beijing for El Economista. He is currently based in Hong Kong.

 

HERIBERTO ARAÚJO arrived in Beijing in early 2007, initially working for the AFP agency as a Spanish correspondent in Beijing and then as a freelance reporter for both French and Spanish media.

About the Author

The first book to examine the unprecedented growth of China's economic investment in the developing world, its impact at the local level, and a rare hands-on picture of the role of ordinary Chinese in the juggernaut that is China, Inc.

 

Beijing-based journalists Juan Pablo Cardenal and Heriberto Araújo crisscrossed the globe from 2009-2011 to investigate how the Chinese are literally making the developing world in their own image. What they discovered is a human story, an economic story, and a political story, one that is changing the course of history and that has never been explored, or reported, in depth and on the ground. 

The “silent army” to which the authors refer is made up of the many ordinary Chinese citizens working around the worldin the oil industry in Kazakhstan, mining minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo, building dams in Ecuador, selling hijabs in Cairowho are contributing to China's global dominance while also leaving their mark in less salutary ways. With original and fresh reporting as well as top-notch writing, China's Silent Army takes full advantage of the Spanish-speaking authors' outsider experience to reveal China's influence abroad in all its most vital implicationsfor foreign policy, trade, private business, and the environment.
