Few Americans realize that, despite the considerable progress in U.S.-China relations since normalization in January 1979, the future of Taiwan is still an unresolved and potentially very troublesome issue. The question of U.S. arms sales to Taiwan remains to plague China, and the political stability of Taiwan can no longer be taken for granted. Li's well-edited book is the result of a conference attended by 15 Chinese-Americans, most of them natives of Taiwan, who express widely differing views on Taiwan's future relations with the PRC. The three congressional reports released by Senator John Glenn, chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asian and Pacific Affairs, include the results of a Subcommittee hearing, a staff report and a two-day workshop. Anyone interested in the future of U.S.-Chinese relations during the next decade would do well to ponder the many issues raised in these provocative inquiries.
