Book: India–Africa relations in the 21st century

Edited by Emma Mawdsley and Gerard McCann, 'India in Africa: Changing Geographies of Power' is now available from Pambazuka Press. In this original book, which enables readers to compare India to China and other 'rising powers' in Africa, expert African, Indian and Western commentators draw on a collection of accessibly written case studies to explore inter-related areas including trade, investment, development aid, civil society relations, security and geopolitics. The following article comprises the book's introductory essay, written by Fantu Cheru and Cyril Obi.
