A little over a decade ago Africa was being spoken of in the media as the "lost" or "hopeless" continent. Now it has some of the fastest growing economies in the world, largely because of the impact of the BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. In this first book to be written about the BRICS as a collective phenomenon, Pádraig Carmody reveals how their engagement with Africa, both individually and collectively, generates both new inequalities and potential for development. Crucially, Carmody shows how the emergence of these economies has begun to alter the very nature of globalization, which is no longer purely a Western-led project. This is a path-breaking examination of Africa's changing role in the world.
