Title Deborah Brautigam’s Will Africa Feed China?: A critical media-centric review
Creator Wekesa, Bob
Description One of the recent noteworthy books in the Africa-China field is Professor Deborah Brautigam’s Will Africa Feed China? The central argument of the paper is that the book is as much a media critique as it is a critique on Chinese investments in African agriculture. Using the book as a springboard, the author begins by commenting on Africa-China/China-Africa scholarship and Brautigam’s place in it. The paper then delineates and analyses the media dimensions of the book. After unpacking the media aspects, the paper concludes with a discussion on further research considerations.
