China in Africa: The Real Story

The Dragon's Gift: Chinese Translation Published

Deborah Brautigam

The Dragon's Gift has now been published in a Chinese translation, by Chinese Academy of Social Sciences press. The cover is a lot less interesting (and they never ran it by me) but CASS has done a lot better job generating buzz about the book than OUP ever did! I've been doing a lot of interviews in the Chinese press, last week and this. Most reporters want to know why on earth I started doing research on this topic as long ago as 1983.

The Dragon's Gift, in Chinese, is available at at 15% discount at China's, at Dang Dang, or direct from the publisher: Social Sciences Academic Press.

CASS has also translated work such as Chinese Politics: New Sources, Methods, and Field Strategies. Cambridge University Press, 2010, co-edited with Allen Carlson, Mary Gallagher, and Kenneth Lieberthal; James Holmes, Red Star over the Pacific: China’s Rise and the Challenge to U.S. Maritime Strategy (with Toshi Yoshihara).

Postscript: Some of the Chinese media stories in the usual places: Global Times (Sept. 2, 2012) People's Daily (Sept. 7, 2012), China Daily (Sept. 8, 2012), Changjiang Daily (Sept. 11, 2012) and a taped show aired on CCTV this weekend, I gather... well-orchestrated, but I wonder if any of the more independent media will cover it?
