Copper examines Taiwan's geography and history, society and culture, economy, political system, and foreign and security policies in the context of Taiwan's uncertain political status as either a sovereign nation or a province of the People's Republic of China. Copper argues that Taiwan's successful democratization suggests Taiwan should be independent and separate from China, while economic links between Taiwan and China indicate differently. New to the sixth edition is enhanced coverage of the issues of immigration; the impact of having the world's lowest birthrate; China's economic and military rise and America's decline; Taiwan's relations with China, the United States, and Japan; the Nationalist Party's return to power; and the 2012 presidential election.
Taiwan's economic and political transformation was once considered a model for developing nations, but in recent decades, the momentum has stalled. Cal Clark and Alexander Tan explain the country's paradoxical political economy, tracing its achievements and exploring its challenges.
