M.E. Sharpe, 1996 253 pp. $52.95 Purchase

This is a collection of very useful essays on the recent political evolution of Taiwan by several American and Taiwanese academics, focusing on two recent elections. The essays were originally presented at a conference at George Washington University in 1994. There is an extremely thoughtful introduction by Robert A. Scalapino that explains why Taiwan was able to make the breakthrough to democracy with little upheaval in a remarkably short time.
