Book description: While the United States is preoccupied with the Middle East, what inroads is China making into Latin America? In China Engages Latin America, experts from three continents provide local answers to this global question. The authors explore the multiple motivations driving the establishment of new Sino–Latin American linkages, the nature of those linkages, and the reactions that they have generated (not least, in the US). Enriching their analysis, they also examine how China–Latin America relations have developed over more than two hundred years. The result is a work that deals with key issues of broad regional relevance, as well as country-specific political, economic, and cultural concerns.
