Following Zheng He's footsteps is more than just one person's quest to retrace the journey of an alluring historical figure shrouded in legend: Zheng. He has become an important symbol for the Chinese people and the world of peace-loving cultural excahnge in general. Li's comprehensive research into the African travels of the iconic figure presents a challenge to the postcolonial world, highlighting the stark contrast between colonising and fair exchange for mutual benefit. A consistent thread in the narrative is how best to respond to the challenge of overturning the exploitation of colonial relationships with friendly collaboration in modern times.
