About the Authors
  • Analysis of China-Latin America relations is usually dominated by policy analysis in political economy, defense strategy and bi-lateral relations. While integrating these topics, this volume differs from earlier works by engaging notions of 'going out' (zou chuqu) and 'arriving in' (desembarco) as metaphors to characterize a wide range of 'new' interactions between China and Latin America: transnational flows of capital and people, adaptation in industrial production and mining, the fluidity of perceptions between China and Latin America, stereotypes and 'othering' of Latin America within China, and changing rhetorical assumptions of the leadership for the China-Latin America relationship. Unusually, this volume has several articles that consider the role of Latin America within China, as well as China's more obvious impact on Latin America. With its primary source material from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Brazil and China, this volume offers an early contribution to the emerging body of scholarship on China and Latin America.

    • Most chapters are based on primary source material
    • All authors have in-depth knowledge of China and/or Latin America (and speak Chinese and/or Spanish or Portuguese as well as English)
    • Despite the different subject matter of each of the chapters, all share a cross cutting concern with questions of hybridization, learning and perception, so there is an unusually strong thematic focus throughout the different chapters
