Description


Trade between China and Africa is increasing year on year, while the West
increasingly debates the nature and implications of China's presence. Yet
little research exists at the organizational and community levels. While
western press reporting is overwhelmingly negative, African governments
mostly welcome the Chinese presence. But what happens at the
management level? How are Chinese organizations run? What are they
bringing to communities? What is their impact on the local job market?
How do they manage staff? How are they working with local firms?
This book seeks to provide a theoretical framework for understanding
Chinese organizations and management in Africa and to explore how
their interventions are playing out at the organizational and community
levels in sub-Saharan Africa. Based on rigorous empirical research
exploring emerging themes in specific African countries, this book develops
implications for management knowledge, education and training
provision, and policy formulation. Importantly it seeks to inform future
scholarship on China's management impact in the world generally, on
Africa's future development, and on international and cross-cultural
management scholarship.
Primarily aimed at scholars of international management, with an
interest in China and/or in China in Africa, this important book will also
be of great interest to those working in the area of development studies,
international politics, and international relations.
