Identity in the Shadow of a Giant : How the Rise of China is Changing Taiwan, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

  • Information


Co-authored by four high-profile International Relations scholars, this book investigates the implications of the global ascent of China on cross-Strait relations and the identity of Taiwan as a democratic state.

Examining an array of factors that affect identity formation, the authors consider the influence of the rapid military and economic rise of China on Taiwan's identity.

Their assessment offers valuable insights into which policies have the best chance of resulting in peaceful relations and prosperity across the Taiwan Strait and builds a new theory of identity at elite and mass levels.

It also possesses implications for the United States-led world order and today's most critical great power competition.
