    schema:description "China's rapid rise to global prominence has become the cause of much debate, reflection, and concern. This topic is especially relevant and of profound consequence to Africans and others concerned with Africa, given China's considerable and growing presence on the continent and the similarities and differences in circumstances and development trajectories between it and African countries. Central to the debate is whether China's earlier support for independence struggles and development initiatives in Africa is giving way to a more exploitative and self-servi8ng relationship, characterised by resource imperialism and a disregard for accountable governance and human rights. This book is another contribution to an increasingly fecund literature on these issues, and is based on a workshop hosted by the Institute for Global Dialogue in conjunction with the South African Institute of International Affairs and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, and attended by eminent scholars and commentators. Topics covered include China's new geo-strategic thrust and mounting internal development challenges, its approach to Africa and engagement with specific countries and sectors, and the implications of its dramatic rise for the United States. This collection provides policy-makers, business people, academics, and others with an interest in Sino-Africa relations with a wide range of well-considered analytical and policy perspectives. Ultimately, the intention is to provide an improved strategic compass for assessing burgeoning Sino-African relations.--"@en ;
