About this book

This book gives a compelling analysis and explanation of shifts in China’s non-intervention policy in Africa. Systematically connecting the neoclassical realist theoretical logic with an empirical analysis of China’s intervention in African civil wars, the volume highlights a methodical interlink between theoretical and empirical analysis that takes into consideration the changing status of rising powers in the global system and its effect on their intervention behaviour. Based on field research and expert interviews, it provides a rigorous analysis of China’s emergent intervention behaviour in some key African conflicts in Libya, South Sudan and Mali and broadens the study of external interventions in civil wars to include the intervention behaviour of non-Western rising powers.

Reviews

“An outstanding path-breaking study that fills an important gap in our understanding of China’s shifting policies towards Africa. Lucidly written and backed by rich data drawing on extensive field research and expert interviews, Hodzi provides a balanced, nuanced and compelling analysis of Beijing’s changing behavior and its potential implications for Africa. A splendid and timely book for scholars and policy-makers alike.” (Shalendra D. Sharma, Lee Shau Kee Chair Professor of Political Science, Lingnan University, Hong Kong)“China’s long-held policy of non-intervention is evolving as its engagement with Africa deepens. The previous approach, which sought to emphasize only economic interactions and deny any political roles, has had to be rethought and Beijing has gone through a profound learning experience. Utilizing the case studies of Libya, South Sudan and Mali, Obert Hodzi skillfully helps us understand this process and throws new light on the Sino-African connection. His book will be read with great interest by all those interested in the burgeoning ties between China and the African continent.” (Ian Taylor, Professor, University of St Andrews, UK and Chair Professor, Renmin University of China, China)
