The Taiwan Railway: 1966-1970 is a delightful photographic journey as seen through the curious eyes of a teenager fascinated by trains. Compiled from hundreds of color slides and photographs taken by the author during his high school years in Taiwan, this book beautifully documents the rapid modernization of the Taiwan Railway system in the late 1960s. After World War II, the island of Taiwan reverted from being a Japanese colony to being part of China for the second time. Four years later, as a result of the Chinese Civil War, the Republic of China government sought refuge there. Generous American assistance helped the island republic to thrive. The 1960s marked the flowering of Taiwan's economic miracle including a rapid and remarkable modernization of the Taiwan Railway. However, Taiwan's strictly enforced martial law banned photography of military subjects including its railway and other strategic infrastructure. Pictorial records from this period are severely limited. This 176 page high quality hardcover book contains 235 photographs, 200 in color, that are reproduced in large images. In addition, there is detailed text in every chapter as well as maps, diagrams and timetable summaries.
