06-May-12 - Cambria Press New Publication: Africans in China is now available!
Cambria Press is pleased to announce that Africans in China: A Sociocultural Study and Its Implications on Africa-China Relations is now available!
This is the first book-length study of Africans travelling to China and forming communities there. Employing combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods involving prolonged interaction with approximately 800 Africans across six main Chinese cities--Guangzhou, Yiwu, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Macau-- Professor Adams Bodomo (The University of Hong Kong) has constructed sociolinguistic and sociocultural profiles that illuminate the everyday life of Africans in China. This unprecedented book provides insights into understanding issues such as why Africans go to China, what they do there, how they communicate with their Chinese hosts, what opportunities and problems they encounter in their China sojourn, and how they are received by the Chinese state.
