Book Review: The Vitality of Taiwan: Politics, Economics, Society and Culture


Check out my review of this excellent book about Taiwan published on the LSE Website:

This books examines Taiwan’s dynamism, contradictions, colour, excitement and, above all, vitality. It asks if the nation’s vitality is a product of its democratic politics, civil society or its predicament as a state with which most of the rest of the world cannot recognise though happily maintain a full range of relations in reality. The Vitality of Taiwan leaves the reader yearning to delve in deeper and learn more about this fascinating country, says Merlin Linehan.
