'Impressive and rigorous, China, Africa and the Future of the
Internet respects different schools of thought regarding the
internet and development, whilst providing a critique that is
schooled and convincing. Gagliardone takes an issue of great
importance and brings fresh and penetrating analysis to it.'
Monroe E. Price, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania
'A very original, rigorous and well-cited contribution to the wider field of China-Africa studies and the current global conversation on internet governance. China, Africa and the Future of the Internet provides a useful counter-perspective to the dominant discourse around internet governance which tends to focus on the global north, excluding the notable developments in internet governance taking place in the global south.'
Cobus van Staden, Co-host of the China in Africa Podcast
