Description - Taiwan: Nation-State or Province? by John Franklin Copper

In this newly revised and updated seventh edition of Taiwan: Nation-State or Province? Copper examines Taiwan's geography and history, society and culture, economy, political system and foreign and security politics in the context of Taiwan's uncertain status, as either a sovereign nation or a province of the People's Republic of China.

Analyzing possible future scenarios and trends that could affect Taiwan's status, the author 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 features to this brand-new edition include:

  • The triumph of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the 2016 elections.
  • The impact of the Trump administration on US-Taiwan relations.
  • The rise of popularism.
  • The shift in cross-Strait relations with China given their increased power on the world stage.

This revised and fully up-to-date textbook will be essential reading for students of Taiwan, China, US-China relations and democracy.
