The [email protected] program welcomed Serge Michel and Paolo Woods to Google's New York office to discuss their book, "China Safari: On the Trail of Beijing's Expansion in Africa". "Serge Michel and Michel Beuret, tell the dramatic -- and largely unknown-- story of the rise of China's economic empire in Africa and how it stands to transform geopolitics. Over the course of nearly two years, Michel and Beuret traveled thousands of miles between China and Africa to report the story of this collaboration. Supplemented by the work of award-winning photojournalist Paolo Woods, China Safari establishes why the world is coming to realize Africa's potential and what role China is playing in the transformation." This event took place on July 22. 2009.
