Overview

This book is admittedly biased in support of liberty. Taiwan: The Threatened Democracy focuses on U.S. relations with Taiwan and the People's Republic of China from the Mao Tse-tung era through the Cold War to the current day, and projects the island's possible future. Taiwan has long been a flashpoint in the struggle between the communist and free world. Yet even as the possibility of armed conflict between China and Taiwan increases - a conflict with great implications for the United States - a domestic war has sprung up between the Bush White House and its support of Taiwan, and State Department staffers who lean heavily to the side of the People's Republic of China. Key to the conflict are those who care more about making profit in China than they care about maintaining liberty in Taiwan.
