Reviews 113 embodiment of an internal and racialized Yellow Peril discourse. This suggests—still following Carrico but also as a conclusion derived from the global scenario sketched by the book as a whole—that we need to think beyond the East-West binary, and that many other binaries exist, including internal and apparently perplexing ones. Generally speaking, Yellow Perils is a remarkable, coherent, and recommendable work that offers an updated and at some moments innovative panoramic discourses about China from a contemporary perspective. Only regrettable is the absence of at least a chapter dealing with the reactions that the economic presence of China is arousing in Latin American countries, a region where Chinese investment has been as important as in Africa. Also, it might have been interesting to see how the book would have worked without the insistence, in almost each and every chapter, on the idea of an essential difference between traditional Yellow Peril discourses and their contemporary redeﬁnitions. The argument is not always convincingly defended, as the justiﬁcation is sometimes only based on contingent evidences that do not point to essential representational issues. However, these small shortcomings do not minimize the contributions of the book, which deserves to be read
