Description

"Paraphrasing a well-known adage, life is not what happens to you, but what you do with what happens.The question is not how did China's rise impact Latin America, but how did Latin America play its cards during China's rise. Some did well in spite of their small size. Others did very poorly, including my own country. This book is a must-read for anybody interested in making the most out of the rise of China."--Ricardo Hausmann, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
"Distinguished expert on Latin American development Carol Wise's timely new book explains how some of China's Latin American partners shaped the China boom to their benefit, while others are floundering in the wake of this global shift. Dragonomics is an essential and highly readable guide to the political economy of these dramatic changes."--Deborah Brautigam, author of The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa
"Dragonomics not only draws much-needed attention to the massive shadow China casts over Latin America, but also skillfully shows the critical role political institutions at the national level continue to play in determining whether and how countries benefit from China's insatiable demand for commodities."--Geoffrey M. Garrett, Dean of The Wharton School
"Drawing on years of field research, Wise helps us to make sense of China�s evolving role in this region, and to understand how some countries have taken better advantage of it than others. Dragonomics makes an outstanding, accessible contribution to our comprehension of China-Latin America relations and will appeal to journalists, investors, activists, and students of all fields." --Cynthia A. Sanborn, Universidad del Pac�fico

"Dragonomics marks the arrival of the next generation of China-Latin America studies. The book offers an original assessment of how Latin America might make the most of--rather than simply react to--China's presence in the region."-- Monica DeHart, University of Puget Sound
