Description - The Taiwan-china Connection by Tse-Kang Leng

Exploring the transitional role of the state in Taiwans economic development, this book focuses especially on the impact of trade with mainland China. Tse-Kang Leng argues that the basic structure of political forces within Taiwan and its pattern of external economic relations have been transformed in the 1990s, with cross-Straits trade playing a key part. Although politically embarrassing to the government, this trade provides an economic opportunity that is irresistibly attractive to business interests. Thus, cross-Straits trade and investment have served as a fulcrum by which societal interests have moved an unwilling state. Going beyond the strong state paradigm, the authors analysis of current cross-Straits economic policies reveals a sharp contrast between Taiwans authoritarian past and its current era of democratization. Weighing the crucial forces at work in Taiwandemocratization, state-society interaction, and economic interdependence with mainland ChinaLeng provides a thorough analysis of Taiwans political and economic development in the 1990s and beyond.
