Beyond Recrimination: Perspectives on U.S.-Taiwan Trade Tensions
Beyond Recrimination: Perspectives on U.S.-Taiwan Trade Tensions
By Jimmy W. Wheeler and Perry L. Wood
Hudson Institute, 1987, 218 pp.

Heavily dependent on the American market and with a fuzzy political status, Taiwan needs to avoid the damage that would come from harsh American protectionist measures. Measures that would help and also strengthen the island's economy are discussed in this useful volume, which also gives sober advice to Americans on how to look at a country which, although it has a trade surplus like that of South Korea and Japan, is otherwise quite different. There is a helpful statistical appendix.
