This is the first book to examine the unprecedented growth of China’s economic investment in the developing world, its impact at the local level, and a rare hands-on picture of the role of ordinary Chinese in the juggernaut that is China, Inc. Beijing-based journalists Juan Pablo Cardenal and Heriberto Araújo crisscrossed the globe from 2009 to 2011 to investigate how the Chinese are literally making the developing world in their own image. What they discovered is a human story, an economic story and a political story that is changing the course of history and that has never before been explored, or reported, in depth and on the ground.
Juan Pablo Cardenal, Heriberto Araújo and Catherine Mansfield (translator)
