"Rotberg, a versatile and prolific scholar, has edited another useful volume on the burgeoning literature on China-Africa relations... The scope, quality, and selective uniqueness of its contents make China into Africa one of the better works in the field. Recommended." -- CHOICE "In China into Africa, Robert Rotberg's multinational slate of authors introduce key issues in this literature from a variety of perspectives. The result is a volume worth reading cover to cover... [It] provides a fascinating introduction not only to a variety of issues at stake in Sino-African relations, but also, necessarily, to the issues at stake in the study of those relations." --Elizabeth Sperbee, Journal of International Affairs
