Reviews

“This book takes an in-depth look – via a case study approach of multiple companies and projects in ten different African countries – at labor (as well as culture, language, and management) issues in China-Africa engagement! This is a welcome addition to a growing literature that has, thus far, emphasized China-Africa macro trends involving trade, investment, loans, and the economic and political issues.” (Yoon Jung Park, PhD, Executive Director, Chinese in Africa/Africans in China Research Network; Associate Director, School of Advanced International Studies-China-Africa Research Institiate, JHU)

“The path to success will never be the same, but one can always learn from others' experiences. This book is a must-read for anyone trying to understand Chinese businesses in Africa. Read this book and learn from one of the best.” (Jindi An Deputy Chairperson, Belt & Road Africa Think-Tank Alliance)
