China's Belt and Road Initiative in East Africa

 Military Review published in its May/June edition an article titled "China's Belt and Road Initiative in East Africa: Finding Success in Failure?" by Edward A. Lynch, Hollins University.

The author argues that to a considerable degree, China has supplanted U.S. influence in East Africa.  If the Belt and Road Initiative is sustained over the next 10 years or so, China will have more global visibility and prestige than it has now.
