Introduction: Can Africa Manage the Power of the Chinese Dragon?
China’s rapid ascent into the ranks of the global economic powers generally elicits marvel at its fortitude and doggedness, and also engenders concerns over the costs for the people, land and other natural resources that undergird this growth. This is particularly so as China extends its economic and political reach beyond its borders and to ever more distant regions. Perhaps nowhere do such attitudes converge so starkly, but also where ambivalence is compounded so immeasurably, as in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
