Africa-China:Mapping an Emergent Axis
This discussion series examines the spatial, political, economic, and cultural parameters of China’s relationship with the African continent. The ideological origins of socialist China’s engagement with African countries derive from the rhetoric of Mao Zedong himself, who first coined the term “intermediate zone” in 1946 to spatialize the vast expanse of contested territories and undecided loyalties sandwiched between the ideological poles of the Soviet Union and the United States after World War II. Today, the scale of China-Africa relations has changed dramatically, making it one of the most important geopolitical bonds of the twenty-first century.
