Review Quotes
Stephen Chan, editor of The Morality of China in Africa
“This is an excellent and bold book. The author provides both detailed evidence and well-honed judgement in entering several controversial areas and providing balanced insights and a platform for proper debate—without hysteria and mythologization.”
Ian Taylor, author of The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation
“Carmody's book critically interrogates the nature and implications for Africa of the BRICS, situating his study within a wider analysis of the processes associated with globalization. This is an important analysis and required reading for all those interested in the future of Africa's international relations.”
Fantu Cheru, coeditor of The Rise of China and India in Africa
“This book is an excellent and concise primer for students of international relations and African Studies interested in understanding the evolving global power shift and Africa's place within it. By carefully deconstructing the acronym BRICS, Carmody exposes its limitations as an analytical tool for understanding structural change.”
Oliver Stuenkel, Post-Western World
“A well researched and highly readable analysis of the BRICS in Africa.”
