What is at stake in the triangular relation between China, Taiwan and America is nothing less than war and peace in the twenty-first century. An analyst of power rivalries in China finds leading cliques afraid "to appear weak" yet not wanting to see "a mishap occur in an invasion of Taiwan." The scholarly analysts writing for this book all hope to make the peace prospect more likely.
This book tries to bring Taiwanese views to the center of concern in order to correct for stereotypes and misperceptions that emanate from China and which unconsciously shape the understanding of Taiwan-China relations in the minds of educated, independent citizens throughout the world who are seeking the whole truth. This book makes central what is usually peripheral to a comprehension of cross Strait relations, the experience of the people of Taiwan.
The collection of essays in this book tries to balance and counter war-prone constructed misunderstandings of Taiwan.
