Former New York Times bureau chief in Africa and China, Howard W. French is uniquely positioned to tell the story of this seismic geopolitical development. Through meticulous on-the-ground reporting, French draws a nuanced portrait of China's economic, political, and human presence across the African continent. We meet a broad spectrum of China's dogged emigrant population, from those singlehandedly reshaping African infrastructure, commerce, and even geography (a timber entrepreneur determined to harvest the entirety of Liberia's old-growth redwoods) to those 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 and how extensive they are; 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.
