As the Penn Libraries' electronic collections grow, keeping track of our fulltext holdings - especially single items within a database - can be very difficult. Many of these ebooks will be found through Franklin Catalog, too, but here are some good recent books that survey China in Africa. Their parent databases will have other useful readings, too.
