Translated by Raymond Valley; Photographs by Paolo Woods. China Safari tells the amazing#and largely unknown#story of the rise of China's economic empire in Africa and how it will change the 21st century and eclipse the role of the West in Africa. China is now Africa#s second largest business partner with trade now at more than $100 billion a year, and growing. Where others see chaos, corruption and endless civil war, the Chinese see opportunities. With no colonial past and few political preconditions#except not recognizing Taiwan#China is bringing investment and infrastructure to a continent that the West has either exploited or been seen fit for handouts. China seems destined to succeed where the West has failed. But is China starting to repeat the imperial arrogance of earlier colonial powers? Traveling from Beijing to Khartoum, from Algiers to Brazzaville, the authors#two leading reporters from Europe and one of the world's leading photographers#try to answer this question, unearthing the extraordinary human stories underlying China's new ventures in Africa. Combining brilliant on-the-ground reporting, profound new insights and analysis, with extraordinary photographs that visualize the largely 'unseen' phenomenon of China in Africa, China Safari brings light to a geopolitical earthquake that rarely gets attention in the West.
