China's Silent Army

Heriberto Ara├║jo, Juan Pablo Cardenal

How Beijing is investing around the world to make itself the 21st century hegemon.

It is very easy to misunderstand the sheer scale and speed with which China is operating. It is not just a question of becoming the world's largest manufacturer. The Chinese government is aware that it needs to secure enormous future supplies of key materials, both to feed its current needs and also to spread its global influence. Beijing has no interest at all in the free market - its plan is to own these resources outright and it will work with anyone in authority willing to cut a deal. If a country has human rights or sanctions problems, this simply improves the price Beijing gets.

In this extraordinary book two leading journalists based in China have travelled around the globe to see the real impact of this immense land-grab, as across South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia a new world is coming into being.

Juan Pablo Cardenal (based in Hong Kong) is China correspondent for El Economista and Heriberto Araujo (based in Beijing) is China correspondent for Notimex.
