It offers surprising insights and challenges us to take a new look at Africa's development.... thoughtful and well-researched... the basis for a well-informed, interesting dialogue with Chinese actors. "--The Huffington Post "Brautigam's lively and thoroughly documented account buck[s] the conventional wisdom."--Foreign Affairs "Now comes a timely book by American academic Deborah Brautigam, an observer of Africa and Asia for three decades, which uses personal experiences combined with powerful research to puncture myths and fears that cloud understanding of one of the most important geopolitical shifts since the fall of the Berlin Wall."--The Independent "If you want to know what China is really doing in Africa, this is the one book to read. The Dragon's Gift corrects the misinformation of both critics and defenders of Chinas role on the continent. Beijing has a long-term, well-planned strategy that goes way beyond a drive to claim minerals and oil. Yet Africans are benefiting from Chinas mixture of aid and investment; Western aid officials could learn from it. I was surprised by new facts on almost every page. Brautigam has given us a compelling, objective, and very readable account enlivened by her personal experiences and interviews."--Susan Shirk, author of China: Fragile Superpower "The Dragon's Gift is a path-breaking book, one that was urgently neede and one which deserves to be widely noticed and read. It not only provides an in-depth analysis of contemporary relations of China with Africa, located within their proper historical context, but meticulously presents, critiques and successfully challenges the array of myths, fears, and misinformation which abound in both press reports and some academic studies of China in Africa."--Roger C. Riddell, author of Does Foreign Aid Really Work?
