Abstract

582 China Review International: Vol. 19, No. 4, 2012 self-interest behavior has alienated many countries in the world, including African countries, which were at first friendly to their Chinese benefactors. He even cites cases of murder and kidnapping of Chinese people in countries where Chinese presence has increased alarmingly D . espite the fact that the black-and-white investigative reportage method of Cardenal and Aruajo raises many questions regarding their selective observations and interviews, where attempts at objectivity seem lacking, they do, nevertheless, fill in the picture of the Chinese presence with case studies, however negative. With a new president, Xi Jinping, and a new slogan of “e C Th hinese Dream” fully in place, the People’s Republic of China, aer t ft hree decades of relentless drive toward wealth and power, may more intentionally seek the idealism represented by its great multimillennial culture. If and when it does, it may very well be much more than a partial power, but that power, however, will be manifested in its humanness, civility, and quest for the common planetary good. Franklin J.
