كتاب يروي التجربة الصينية في التجارة الأفريقية وفي استخراج المعادن هناك

كتاب لم يضف شيئا إلى الذاكرة المهمة عندي
ربما لأن المعلومات التي فيه يمكن اقتباسها من المراجع الاخبارية والسياسية دون الحاجة لقراءة هذا الكتاب فهو لا يشرح ثروة التجربة التي قامت بتطويرها الصين داخل أفريقيا

صراحة الكتاب لا أستطيع تقيمه جيدا يحتوي على معلومات كثيرة أغلبها عن تجارة الصين في أفريقيا يعني قرأت و كونت الفكرة لدي و أغلقت الكتاب . كأسلوب جيد فقط عرض عن حقائق و أنت شخصيا تحدد نوع العلاقة
Some interesting insight into what is taking place rather quietly, out of Western scrutiny, but a pretty dry read.
