This key publication from China's prestigious Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) takes an in-depth look at the hugely significant and evolving relationship between China and the nations of Latin America from a Chinese perspective. With their historical links and relationships, and more recently with China and Brazil's partnership within BRICS, Latin American nations have played an important part in China's transformation. These strengthening relationships and the current strategies of the Chinese government are reviewed and discussed. Written by China's leading Latin America specialists and advisors, it offers a unique insight into China's relations with Latin American nations including Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. Contributors include He Shuangrong, Director of the International Relationship Research Division of the Institute of Latin American Studies, plus key academics from CASS.
