The Morality of China in Africa : The Middle Kingdom and the Dark Continent, Paperback / softback Book

The Morality of China in Africa : The Middle Kingdom and the Dark Continent Paperback / softback

Edited by Stephen Chan


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.

The book starts with an excellent introductory essay from Stephen Chan, written in his usual elegant prose and featuring some very fresh insights organised with great clarity.

Featuring useful historical context, this brave book analyses the "moral" aspects of the policies and ensuing migration. The book completely undermines existing assumptions concerning Sino-African relations, such as that Africa is of critical importance for China; that China sees no risk in its largesse towards Africa; and that there is a single Chinese profile/agenda.

The resulting collection touches the issue of racism but is equally about moments of pure idealism and 'romance' in Sino-African history.
