Abstract:The period since the People's Republic of China launched its new Africa policy in January 2006 has seen a strengthening of diplomatic and economic relations between China and the African continent. In this two-part article, the development of China-Africa relations since 1949 is investigated from a historical perspective. The first part of the article deals with Chinese relations with Africa during the reign of Mao Zedong (the so-called 'first wave') and the second part with relations after the Mao era (the 'second wave'). Trends, patterns, continuities and discontinuities between the two 'waves' are analysed to put the current relations between China and Africa in their proper historical and international relations context.
