Analyzes the many domestic and international factors comprising Taiwan's security situation in the late 1990s and the early 21st century. Discussed in detail are the critical issues of China's willingness to go to war over Taiwan and the probability that the US will defend Taiwan against PRC aggression. Concludes that US arms sales to Taiwan will likely continue and that Congress and the American public will likely sustain a high level of support for Taiwan, and that the probability of a Sino-American confrontation will grow in the coming years. Lasater is a strategic analyst for Asia-Pacific security affairs and a non-resident scholar at the Atlantic Council of the United States. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c.
