'This is a superb work and punctures the myth of African countries in thrall to China. Lucy Corkin's deep account of how the Angolan Government exercises its agency, and how it negotiates with China, is revelatory. The work is nuanced and balanced and important.'Stephen Chan, School of Oriental & African Studies, UK'This exceptionally rich and informed book punctures much of the myth about China's operations in Africa. Based on detailed primary fieldwork in Angola and China, Corkin shows the limits to the "China's impact on Africa" lens. This is a relationship driven as much by Africans as by the Chinese. Read it, and be informed by evidence rather than prejudice!'Raphael Kaplinsky, The Open University, UK 'This book is an immense achievement. It provides a finely detailed look at a critical relationship, and an illuminating analysis that is both empirically rich and theoretically sophisticated. Highly recommended for scholars, policy makers and anyone seeking a better understanding of how China really works in Africa.'Deborah Brautigam, Johns Hopkins University, USA, and author of The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa
