This study explores the Taiwan issue from the three perspectives of Beijing, Taipei, and Washington since Taiwan leader Lee Teng-hui's visit to Cornell University in 1995. These are explored, by leading scholars, not only in terms of the three parties involved, but also in terms of the differences within each party.
