Read an Excerpt

After the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937, Japan had strengthened the Japanization policy enforced in Taiwan, which banned the use of Chinese from newspapers and imposed restrictions on newspaper publishing. By the spring of 1944, there were only six newspapers left in Taiwan: Taiwan Nichinichi Shinpou , Taiwan Shinbun , Taiwan Daily , East Taiwan News , Kaosyun Shinpō , and Xingnan News , among which only Xingnan News was run by Chinese people. On April 1, 1944, the Government General of Taiwan forced Taiwan Shinbun and other four newspapers to be integrated with Taiwan Nichinichi Shinpou , and renamed as Taiwan Shinpou , which was published exclusively. Dōmei News Agency, the official news agency of Japan, was the only agency allowed in Taiwan. The journalism industry of Taiwan had been fully controlled by Japan till Japan’s surrender.
