This book provides a brief recount of Chinese engagement in Africa dating back to the 1950s. It suggests that China’s increasing presence in Africa, is due to China’s need for natural resources and new markets to sell its Chinese goods. The book also portrays a shift in the way the Sino-African relationship has been portrayed. The Chinese expansion was first seen as an older brother, a co-victim of Western domination, this image would later shift due to a number of questionable Chinese activities in the continent, which this book will be discussing.
