Dear all:

I have a recent publication out that others might find of interest: "Giving ‘Prominence to Politics’: African Sportsmen Visit China in the Early Cultural Revolution." It's in an edited volume on China-Africa relations and primarily based on archival sources (Shanghai) of African sports team delegation visits made to China between June-October 1966. I'm forwarding the book announcement with table of contents below (originally posted to the Chinese in Africa/Africans in China (CA/AC) Research Network), but if anyone would like a copy of just my chapter please contact me directly, off-list.

Best,
Amanda Shuman
