    By Howard French

    Read by Don Hagen

    How a Million Migrants Are Building a New Empire in Africa

    An account of China's presence in Africa, an empire shaping the future of millions of people.

    “China’s trade with Africa has grown dramatically…But China’s investments…are less significant for this rapidly evolving relationship, according to this 15-country survey by veteran African correspondent French, than the significant flow of new Chinese immigrants—often pushed out by the pressure and oppression back home as much as lured by opportunity. In vivid first-person reportage, French explores this momentous phenomenon, while challenging assumptions about China and Chinese immigrants…The book will appeal to students of China and Africa, and anyone interested in the shifting contours of the global economy and its geopolitical consequences.” - Publishers Weekly
