Is China a rogue donor, as some media pundits suggest? Or is China helping the developing world pave a pathway out of poverty, as the Chinese claim? In the last few years, China's aid program has leapt out of the shadows. Media reports about huge aid packages, support for pariah regimes, regiments of Chinese labor, and the ruthless exploitation of workers and natural resources in some of the poorest countries in the world sparked fierce debates. These debates, however, took place with very few hard facts. China's tradition of secrecy about its aid fueled rumors and speculation, making it difficult to gauge the risks and opportunities provided by China's growing embrace. This well-timed book, by one of the world's leading experts, provides the first comprehensive account of China's aid and economic cooperation overseas. Deborah Brautigam tackles the myths and realities, explaining what the Chinese are doing, how they do it, how much aid they give, and how it all fits into their "going global" strategy. Drawing on three decades of experience in China and Africa, and hundreds of interviews in Africa, China, Europe and the US, Brautigam shines new light on a topic of great interest. China has ended poverty for hundreds of millions of its own citizens. Will Chinese engagement benefit Africa? Using hard data and a series of vivid stories ranging across agriculture, industry, natural resources, and governance, Brautigam's fascinating book provides an answer. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with China's rise, and what it might mean for the challenge of ending poverty in Africa.

New York Times bestselling author Jo Beverley presents a romantic fairy tale in which one princess’s idea of happily-ever-after gets turned upside down... A dragon has invaded Saragond! The time has come for Princess Rozlinda to be sacrificed. She is the designated SVP—the sacrificial virgin princess—and her chaste royal blood will appease the monster and prevent the destruction of the kingdom. Not to worry! A dragon hasn’t eaten a princess in ages. It’s purely ceremonial now. Just a small cut and a little bit of blood, and Rozlinda will have done her duty. She’ll be free at last to cease being both “S” and “V,” and she has the man in mind. But things don’t go quite to plan. Someone kills the dragon, and tradition says that the princess must marry the dragon slayer, whoever that may be. Even if it is the terrifying dragon rider of Dorn himself! Previously appeared as The Dragon and the Virgin Princess in the anthology Dragon Lovers Praise for the Novels of Jo Beverley "Arguably today’s most skillful writer of intelligent historical romance.”—Publishers Weekly “A delish little scandal, wicked stolen kisses, and a wonderful ending that had me heaving my happy sigh.”—Smexy Books "With delicious bantering and a rapid pace, it’s a sensual and enthralling read.”—RT Book Reviews
