Reviews
Review Quotes
"Taiwan has effective domestic and Westphalian/Vattellian sovereignty and limited international legal sovereignty in the form of recognition from a relatively small number of states. The lack of formal recognition, however, has not prevented other countries from conducting what are, in fact, diplomatic relations with Taiwan. The U.S.-Taiwan Relations Act, for instance, essentially creates an embassy, the American Institute in Taiwan, without calling it an embassy. The Act states that Taiwan is to be treated in the same way as foreign countries, nation states, and similar entities."--from the Foreword by Stephen Krasner, Professor of Political Science, Stanford University

Summaries

Description for Bookstore
Featuring a range of stellar contributors, this topical new book examines the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979
Main Description
The rise of China as a great power in East Asia, the return of the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party) as the ruling political party in Taiwan, and new pressures on America's traditionally dominant position in the region create a crossroads in the relations between the United States, China and Taiwan. This timely book examines the background, current issues, and future possibilities for this triangular relationship, in which geostrategic interests grapple with the ideological battle between democracy and authoritarianism, the question of sovereignty over Taiwan, and Taiwan's own contested identity. At stake is not only Taiwan's destiny but also US-China relations.
