China’s Economic Engagement in Africa

A Case Study of Angola

Sezgi Cemiloğlu

This book analyzes the growing influence of China in Angola. The author answers the question how and in what extent China has gained influence over the economic development of Angola since the end of the civil war in 2002. She presents the economic facilities of China in Angola from trade and investment to business transactions in the context of Andrew Moravcsik’s Commercial Liberalism Theory. To measure the extension of China’s economic influence through its way of investment (Angola-Mode) and a «no strings attached»-policy, not only the economic interdependent relations between China and Angola have become the focus of this far-reaching book. The author also discusses a process of gradual change of the relations of two rival powers – China and the USA – with Angola.
