9780981690506: China in Africa


Beginning in earnest at the turn of the twenty-first century, China embarked on a robust multilevel engagement strategy with a number of African states on three simultaneous fronts—economic, political, and military. The push was predicated by Beijing's need to secure energy and natural resources to fuel its booming economy and bolster its position as the world's manufacturing hub. The depth of China's engagement cannot be understated, and its increasing stakes in the security dimension of Africa's myriad conflicts is affecting the geopolitical landscape of a continent that has been in the past an exclusive domain of the West. C hina in Africa examines the multifaceted effects of China's engagement with the continent, both its many risks and opportunities. It provides critical and relevant information for understanding the strategic drivers, trends, and the potential impact of China in Africa. The book covers Chinese soft and hard power, energy and arms relations, and China's relations with individual African countries: Angola, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Ultimately, this volume serves to assist in improving U.S. policymakers' understanding of China's role in Africa and ensure that appropriate measures are taken to secure American interests in the region. Contributors include Mauro De Lorenzo (American Enterprise Institute), Drew Thompson (Nixon Center),Wenran Jiang (University of Alberta), Paul Hare (U.S.-Angola Chamber of Commerce), Susan M. Puska (Defense Group, Inc.), Ian Taylor (University of St. Andrews), Chris Zambelis (Helios Global, Inc.), David Shinn (GeorgeWashington University), Joshua Eisenman (American Foreign Policy Council), Yitzhak Shichor (University of Haifa), Greg Mills and Christopher Thompson (Brenthurst Foundation), Andrew McGregor (Aberfoyle International), and John C.

Review:

Arthur Waldron has done a brilliant job of compiling and analyzing papers written on relations between China and Africa over the years for the Jamestown Foundation's China Brief. China's quest for natural resources and its ever-expanding reach in the developing world will be the source of foreign policy challenges for the United State for years to come. This book will be an indispensable resource both for specialists and general observers. -- Ambassador John R. Bolton, Former Permanent U.S. Representative to the United Nations

This book will be an indispensable resource both for specialists and general observers. -- Ambassador John R. Bolton, Former Permanent U.S. Representative to the United Nations

China has a long history in Africa, dating back to liberation wars, non-aligned movements, and third world relationships. Recent growth in Chinese interests in Africa stems primarily from economic activity and attempts to guarantee access to oil and other commodities necessary to fuel China's economic growth. China's investments have also contributed to Africa's infrastructure, health care, and educational needs. China has been up front in its actions, publishing a white paper in 2006 and following its strategy in a fairly transparent manner. This increase in activity is not necessarily bad or adversarial to U.S. interests, but should be fully understood and evaluated. Chinese lack of concern over good governance matters and support for pariah regimes in Zimbabwe and Sudan as well as broader Chinese arms sales on the continent are destabilizing and merit attention. This volume of well written articles will help to broaden our understanding and deepen our awareness of China's activities on the African continent. -- General Carlton W. Fulford, Jr., U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), Former Deputy Commander in Chief, United States European Command (DCINCEUR)

China in Africa provides a fulsome, balanced examination spanning past to future of oil-thirsty, mineral-hungry China's potentially limitless constructive and disruptive, often high-risk, activities--some successful, others not. As to China's complex evolving motives in Africa, the book astutely probes beyond resource needs--seldom engaging in exaggeration and "China bashing." Many chapters are gems of clarity and brevity. Although rising China strategically uses economic and soft power, Beijing is seen subjecting itself to American and international criticism by persisting in short-sighted trade, investment, and aid practices that produce resentment. China's pursuit of an oil-based future is interestingly labeled folly. Fully vetted is Beijing's "see-no-evil" policy of noninterference in domestic affairs--including contentious arms transfers--that abets "rogue regimes." Sino-U.S. divergences are examined impartially, including prospects for competition and for broad cooperation vice confrontation. The new USAFRICOM military command is cited as a factor in possible Chinese consideration of expanded military representation and presence, although military confrontation is not forecast. -- Rear Admiral Eric A. McVadon, U.S. Navy (Retired)
