9780813346922: Taiwan: Nation-State or Province?

In this newly revised and updated edition of Taiwan: Nation-State or Province? John F. Copper examines Taiwan's geography and history, society and culture, economy, political system, and foreign and security policies in the context of Taiwan's uncertain political status as either a sovereign nation or a province of the People's Republic of China. Copper argues that Taiwan's very rapid and successful democratization suggests Taiwan should be independent and separate from China, while economic links between Taiwan and China indicate the opposite.

New to the sixth edition is enhanced coverage of the issues of immigration; the impact of having the world's lowest birthrate; China's economic and military rise and America's decline; Taiwan's relations with China, the United States, and Japan; and the KMT's (Nationalist Party) return to power. The new edition will also examine the implications of the 2012 presidential election. A selected bibliography guides students in further research.

About the Author:

John F. Copper is the Stanley J. Buckman Distinguished Professor of International Studies Emeritus at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. He is the author of more than twenty-five books on Taiwan, China, and Asian affairs. His book China's Global Role won the Clarence Day Foundation Award for outstanding research and creativity.

Review:

"John F. Copper provides a comprehensive, yet succinct, analysis of Taiwan's history, politics, economics, society, and international position that is informative, interesting, and highly readable. A major contribution of the text is the way that he discusses what each facet of Taiwan's experience implies for the central question of whether it is an independent nation-state or a province of China."
Cal Clark, Auburn University

"In this fully revised and updated volume, Copper provides a well-written, well-structured overview of Taiwan. . . . As a comprehensive yet concise introduction to Taiwan, this book is not only an ideal stating place for undergraduates but also a valuable reference for scholars. Students and general readers alike will benefit from reading Copper's fantastic and extensive research."
Choice

"One virtue of this book is that the author has spent several decades studying and writing on Taiwan. This focus has allowed his analysis to have breadth, as well as a deep understanding of change and continuity in Taiwan and the Republic of China. The book avoids impressionable interpretations and is based on careful, longitudinal analysis. . . . [It] is a pleasure to use in the classroom."
