Product Description

AFRICA-CHINA PARTNERSHIPS AND RELATIONS: African Perspectives

Product Description

This book provides a broader platform for studying relations between African States and China by moving away from the Panda Huggers and the Fear Factor dichotomy. It attempts to tease out the good that is manifest in these relations and to establish possibilities on how to correct perceived asymmetries between Africa and China.

The book is not limited to discussions on Africa-China relations. It goes a step further by analyzing the role of partnerships with Euro-American States in the face of a developing China. Such an exercise allows the reader to draw parallels between old and new economic powers, and the impact these powers have on the development of African economies. The multidisciplinary nature of this book makes it relevant to a wider readership as it approaches the subject of “Afro-Chinese” relations from a variety of accessible perspectives.

 

"Any reader seeking answers to questions such as "what avenues exist for reconceptualizing and realigning the Africa-China partnership to address Africa's strategic interests?" will find many stimulating answers and insights in the 12 chapters of Africa China Partnerships and Relations written by various Africans. These excellent chapters with well-argued points based on rich empirical data make the book stand out as a treasure trove among competing works! This book is a must-read text for graduate students, policy makers, experts in the field of Africa-China relation studies, as well as the general public."

--Adams Bodomo, Professor of African Studies (Chair of Languages and Literatures),
Director, Global African Diaspora Studies (GADS) Research Platform, University of Vienna


"Africa-China Partnerships and Relations: African perspectives weighs in authoritatively on the on-going debates around evolving Afro-Chinese partnerships and its ramifications for Africa in a century marked by fast-paced global transformations. The book showcases new thinking by some of Africa’s finest minds on the imperative for building Africa-China partnerships in ways that strategically prioritize Africa’s medium to long-term interests"
