New book: China-Africa Relations - Building Images through Cultural Co-operation, Media Representation, and Communication

Edited by Kathryn Batchelor, Xiaoling Zhang

This volume of 14 essays explores China-Africa relations from the perspective of cultural exchange and media representation and includes reflections on the role played by translation in international relations.

The recent rapid growth in China’s involvement in Africa is being promoted by both Chinese and African leaders as being conducted in a spirit of cooperation, friendship and equality. In the media and informally, however, a different, less harmonious picture emerges. This book explores how China and Africa really regard each other, how official images are manufactured, and how informal images are nevertheless shaped and put forward. The book covers a wide range of areas where China-Africa exchange exists, including diplomacy, technological cooperation, sport, culture and arts exchange. The book also discusses the historical development of the relationship and how it is likely to develop going forward.
