For the last several months, I have been reporting on the massive Chinese investment in Zambia — particularly in its mining sector — and the tension-filled aftermath of this investment. I have a piece in the new issue of Fortune on Zambia’s mining troubles, and recently wrote articles for The New Yorker on the violent Chinese mining controversy in Zambia and on African criticism of Chinese investment.
