Dispelling the myths of China's presence in Africa" was published August 30, 2012. Still working on getting a more accurate picture out there. And there's lots of scope for that. When things calm down in my new position as Director of the International Development Program at Johns Hopkins/SAIS, I hope to post more -- still have things to say on the FOCAC meetings!
