This unique volume, edited with authority by the influential and respected Stephen Chan, gathers together for the first time both African and Chinese perspectives on China’s place in Africa, analysing the moral aspects of China’s policies and ensuing migration. Chan introduces the book with an excellent essay, offering fresh insights in his typically elegant prose. The Morality of China in Africa undermines existing assumptions concerning Sino-African relations: that Africa is of critical importance for China, that China sees no risk in its largesse towards Africa, and that there is a single Chinese agenda. The resulting collection touches the issue of racism but also moments of pure idealism and ‘romance’ in Sino-African history.
