About this product
- DescriptionThe first book to examine the unprecedented growth of China's ecomic investment in the developing world, its impact at the local level, and a rare hands-on picture of the role of ordinary Chinese in the juggernaut that is China, Inc. Beijing-based journalists Juan Pablo Cardenal and Heriberto Araujo crisscrossed the globe from 2009-2011 to investigate how the Chinese are literally making the developing world in their own image. What they discovered is a human story, an ecomic story, and a political story, one that is changing the course of history and that has never been explored, or reported, in depth and on the ground. The silent army to which the authors refer is made up of the many ordinary Chinese citizens working around the world--in the oil industry in Kazakhstan, mining minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo, building dams in Ecuador, selling hijabs in Cairo--who are contributing to China's global dominance while also leaving their mark in less salutary ways. With original and fresh reporting as well as top-tch writing, China's Silent Army takes full advantage of the Spanish-speaking authors' outsider experience to reveal China's influence abroad in all its most vital implications--for foreign policy, trade, private business, and the environment.
- Author BiographyJUAN PABLO CARDENAL has been reporting from and about China and the Asia-Pacific region since 2003--first as Shanghai correspondent for El Mundo, and later from Singapore and Beijing for El Economista.
