Baker & Taylor
Describes the growing economic relationship between China and developing African nations, claiming that the nation's lack of colonial past and political preconditions provides China a unique opportunity to help Africa direct its own fate.

Perseus Publishing
China has now taken Great Britain’s place as Africa’s 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 China’s 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.

The dramatic?and largely unknown?story of the rise of China’s economic empire in Africa and how it will transform geopolitics
