Abstract

Reviews 385 Finally, reading this book only one year after its publication brings home the fact that Africa, China, and the relationship between them are complex and changing realities. For example, in the past twelve months, public opinion is gaining in importance for China. At the same time, the China-Zimbabwe relationship that was predicted to be on the decline suddenly made the headlines again with President Mugabe's Chinese-sponsored birthday party in 2010. The causes of the shift might be a matter for another treatise, but the event itself brings home the fact that relationship between China and various African countries is complicated and continually changing. In sum, this book is not to be devoured on a quiet evening. It is a thoughtful and thought-provoking analysis that serious students of the relationship between China and African countries will want to read, ponder, and discuss.
