About this book

As a country, Taiwan is one of the most vibrant, exciting, colourful and entrepreneurial on earth. The contributors reveal what underpins the vitality of Taiwan, examining the relevance of its democratic politics, civil society and the presence of an existential threat from China, as well as the importance of its international business nexus.

Reviews

"Steve Tsang was able to bring together a group of noted Taiwan scholars... each in their own field, [describe] how the society broke through the vestiges of the old authoritarian regime, and brought about a dynamism, exuberance and creativity that was unheard of just a couple of decades ago... In all, a very valuable contribution to the understanding of where Taiwan came from, and where its people want to go." Gerrit van der Wees
