Hughes); Fuelling the dragon: China's rise and its energy and resources extraction in Africa (Wenran Jiang); China's Sudan engagement: changing northern and southern political trajectories in peace and war (David Large); In it for the long term? Governance and learning among Chinese investors in Zambia's copper sector (Dan Haglund); Raw encounters: Chinese managers, African workers and the politics of casualization in Africa's Chinese enclaves (Ching Kwan Lee) (Zambia and Tanzania); The Chinese 'amigo': implications for the development of Equatorial Guinea (Mario Esteban); China's engagement in African agriculture: 'down to the countryside' (Deborah A. Bräutigam and Tang Xiaoyang); Chinese shops and the formation of a Chinese expatriate community in Namibia (Gregor Dobler); African perspectives on China-Africa links (Barry Sautman, Yan Hairong); Representations of Africa in a Hong Kong soap opera: the limits of enlightened humanitarianism in 'The Last Breakthrough' (Martha Saavedra); and The past and the present: historical and rhetorical lineages in China's relations with Africa (Julia Strauss).
