Beginning with an attack on our establishment of diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China (PRC), Kubek, former political science chairman, University of Dallas, compares life on Taiwan and the mainland in a manner that lacks objectivity. He depicts the economy and society of the Republic of China in glowing terms, while he invariably discusses the PRC in a critical and disparaging manner. The history and analyses are selective, inaccurate, and inconsistent. Some of his criticism of the PRC is valid, but buried under much propaganda. Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham, N.C.
