Descripción Vintage, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Extraordinary.French delves into the lives of some of the one million-plus Chinese migrants he says are now building careers in Africa.and the stories [he] tells are fascinating." -- The New York Times Book Review "Riveting.As a massive transactional process, China''s entry into Africa has been a dramatic success.but as an ideological and cultural undertaking, Mr. French''s masterly account suggests that it is getting nowhere." -- The Economist "Howard French.let[s] the Africans and Chinese speak for themselves as he travels through fifteen countries. The result is a rich, complex, and satisfying look at this strange marriage." -- The New York Review of Books "In his important new book, French weaves a rich tapestry of anecdotes, interspersed with numerous interviews with Chinese migrants and Africans alike, offering readers an eminently fair, occasionally humorous and sympathetic, but always engaging account.A searing, trenchant, and entertaining study of how China, in both an individual and collective sense, is shrewdly and opportunistically maximizing its relationships with African nations in an effort to extend its economic influence across the world. " -- The Christian Science Monitor "China''s trade with Africa has grown dramatically.But China''s investments.are less significant for this rapidly evolving relationship, according to this 15-country survey by veteran African correspondent French, than the significant flow of new Chinese immigrants--often pushed out by the pressure and oppression back home as much as lured by opportunity. In vivid first-person reportage, French explores this momentous phenomenon, while challenging assumptions about China and Chinese immigrants.The book will appeal to students of China and Africa, and anyone interested in the shifting contours of the global economy and its geopolitical consequences." -- Publishers Weekly "Although several recent books have discussed.China''s recent incursions into Africa in pursuit of resources and profit,.French has the advantage of significant personal experience in both Africa and China.Interacting with Chinese and Africans in Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Namibia, and elsewhere, French capably illustrates that although Chinese omnipresence in Africa may be a form of soft imperialism, it is also a result of the crushing pressures--lack of space, merciless business competition, pollution--of modern Chinese society." -- Booklist "The huge and growing ties between China and the African continent will be one of the most crucial relationships of the 21st century, and you simply could not invent a better guide to it than Howard French. Superbly written, rich in anecdote, insight, and a sense of the immense scale of what is happening, China''s Second Continent should be mandatory reading for anyone wanting to understand how our world is being reshaped." --Adam Hochschild, author, King Leopold''s Ghost "We owe tremendous thanks to Howard French for this fascinating and deeply reported book. He is an audacious writer who takes his readers to the far-flung factories, farms and living rooms of the Chinese entrepreneurs who are flooding into countries like Mozambique, Zambia and Senegal. French intrepidly explores the other side of the global coin, giving voice to an array of Africans reacting warily to the new imperialists in their midst. This is an essential book for understanding not just China and Africa but our changing world." --Peter Maass, author, Crude World "Almost no other writer would have dared the reportorial and story-telling challenge Howard French has set for himself in China''s Second Continent , and absolutely none could have pulled it off as well. This is foreign reportage and analysis presented as compelling human drama." --James Fallows, author, China Airborne "In Howard French''s wonderfully engaging new book, he draws on his journalistic experience covering both China and A.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 198 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A New York Times Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year at The Economist The Guardian Foreign Affairs Chinese immigrants of the recent past and unfolding twenty-first century are in search of the African dream. So explains indefatigable traveler Howard W. French, prize-winning investigative journalist and former New York Times bureau chief in Africa and China, in the definitive account of this seismic geopolitical development. China s burgeoning presence in Africa is already shaping, and reshaping, the future of millions of people. From Liberia to Senegal to Mozambique, in creaky trucks and by back roads, French introduces us to the characters who make up China s dogged emigrant population: entrepreneurs singlehandedly reshaping African infrastructure, and less-lucky migrants barely scraping by but still convinced of Africa s opportunities. French s acute observations offer illuminating insight into the most pressing unknowns of modern Sino-African relations: Why China is making these cultural and economic incursions into the continent; what Africa s role is in this equation; and what the ramifications for both parties and their people and the watching world will be in the foreseeable future.
