About this book

This book explores how technological change is influencing the dynamics of relations between mainland China and Taiwan. Using the latest research, it examines the acceleration of technology-led and how it shapes three key dimensions of the cross-Strait relationship: the overarching security context; the economic context; and the cultural context.

Reviews

'Cross-strait relations are clearly a multi-dimensional phenomenon, but prior to this book, rarely did one volume address the political, economic and cultural aspects of cross-strait relations adequately, let alone with the depth found across the chapters of Cross-Taiwan Strait Relations in an Era of Technological Change.' Douglas B. Fuller, Professor, School of Management, Zhejiang University, China

'The editors are to be commended for expertly marshalling a remarkably wide range of expertise in a way that throws fresh light on many of the most pressing issues shaping cross-Strait relations in the early 21st century. The key to the book's success lies in its path-breaking and provocative use of technology as a prism through which to view security, economic and cultural challenges that are at the heart of the dynamic of cross-Strait ties.' Robert Ash, Professor of Economics with reference to China and Taiwan, SOAS, University of London, UK
