The book provides a general and actualized vision of the structure of China’s relations with the Latin American region. It focuses analytically on China’s global strategy through a study of different national cases seen from Latin American perspectives. It points out the overall pattern of China-Latin American relations as taking the form of a North-South axis in which Latin America and particularly South America plays a specific role in China’s economic development strategy and in its global strategy.
This book conceptualizes the economic relations between China and Latin America in different national cases from the perspectives of international political economy–based structuralism theory, the core-periphery model and the world system theory. It contributes to the interpretation of the consequences of the interaction between China’s successful modernization and Latin America’s failed development model.
