Summary
French reveals the human face of China's economic, political, and human presence across the African continent-- and in doing so reveals what is at stake for everyone involved. We meet a broad spectrum of China's dogged emigrant population, from those singlehandedly reshaping African infrastructure, commerce, and even environment, to those just barely scraping by, still convinced that Africa affords them better opportunities than their homeland. And we encounter an equally panoramic array of African responses to this new world order
