9780199396856: Will Africa Feed China?

Is China building a new empire in rural Africa? Over the past decade, China's meteoric rise on the continent has raised a drumbeat of alarm. China has 9 percent of the world's arable land, 6 percent of its water, and over 20 percent of its people. Africa's savannahs and river basins host the planet's largest expanses of underutilized land and water. Few topics are as controversial and emotionally charged as the belief that the Chinese government is aggressively buying up huge tracts of prime African land to grow food to ship back to China.

In Will Africa Feed China?, Deborah Brautigam, one of the world's leading experts on China and Africa, probes the myths and realities behind the media headlines. Her careful research challenges the conventional wisdom; as she shows, Chinese farming investments are in fact surprisingly limited, and land acquisitions modest. Defying expectations, China actually exports more food to Africa than it imports. Is this picture likely to change? African governments are pushing hard for foreign capital, and China is building a portfolio of tools to allow its agribusiness firms to "go global." International concerns about "land grabbing" are well-justified. Yet to feed its own growing population, rural Africa must move from subsistence to commercial agriculture. What role will China play? Moving from the halls of power in Beijing to remote irrigated rice paddies of Africa, Will Africa Feed China? introduces the people and the politics that will shape the future of this engagement: the state-owned Chinese agribusiness firms that pioneered African farming in the 1960s and the entrepreneurial private investors who followed them. Their fascinating stories, and those of the African farmers and officials who are their counterparts, ground Brautigam's deeply informative, deftly balanced reporting.

Forcefully argued and empirically rich, Will Africa Feed China? will be a landmark work, shedding new light on China's evolving global quest for food security and Africa's possibilities for structural transformation.

About the Author:


Deborah Brautigam is Professor and Director of the International Development Program at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington, DC and the author of The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa. A long-time observer of Asia and Africa, she has lived in China, West Africa, and Southern Africa, and travelled extensively across both regions as a Fulbright researcher and consultant for the World Bank, the UN, and other development agencies.

Review:


"The author specifically looks at land acquisition in Africa by the Chinese, Chinese government policy about land acquisition in Africa, food production in Africa for export to China, and Chinese farmers being sent to Africa. The organization used to present information about Chinese activity causes readers to go back and forth in time, between industries and between countries. The book is a useful addition to the discussion of China's role in Africa's agricultural development as well as agricultural development in African countries in general." -- J. E. Weaver, Drake University, CHOICE


"Engagingly written with scholarly rigour... an essential read for those concerned with China's growing presence in Africa, the charged debate on 'land grabbing' and the future of Africa's agricultural development." --China Dialogue


"Debates about China's involvement in Africa, particularly around land and agriculture, are frequently ill-informed. This book challenges the myths and explores the realities on the ground through a series of fascinating cases. Anyone interested in the global politics of land and food, and the role of China and Africa, should read this highly informative and engagingly-written book." --Ian Scoones, Professorial Fellow, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex


"Will Africa Feed China? is a delight. It shows investigative social science at its best as it explores - with simplicity and clarity-the truth behind widespread claims of China's rapidly expanding footprint all over Africa. It should be read by anyone who wishes to go behind the headlines about the world order undergoing transformative change as China surges and the United States loses ground." --Robert H. Wade, Professor, Department of International Development, London School of Economics


"A sequel to her highly acclaimed book, The Dragon's Gift, Deborah Brautigam, once again based on penetrating field studies, provides a fascinating account of the facts of Chinese agricultural investment in Africa to dispel many widespread false accusations about China's intentions and activities in African agriculture. This is a timely book for anyone concerning about the destiny of African people and China's role in African development." --Justin Yifu Lin, Professor and Honorary Dean, National School of Development, Peking University, and Former Chief Economist, World Bank


"Will Africa Feed China? is another myth-busting classic from one of the world's leading scholars of China's overseas economic policies." -Thomas J. Christensen, Princeton University, Author of The China Challenge: Shaping the Choices of a Rising Power


"Cogent analysisELBrautigam cuts her own swathe through myths about this relationship." - Nature Magazine


"Essential reading for any journalist or NGO practitioner wishing to stake a claim on China's engagement in Africa and what it means for Africa's development." - China Dialogue


"Engagingly written with scholarly rigourEL an essential read for those concerned with China's growing presence in Africa, the charged debate on 'land grabbing' and the future of Africa's agricultural development." - Financial Times
