Maritime Taiwan, a New Book with a Different Perspective on Taiwan

Writing in the Asian American Press, Richard Kagan provides a Book Review on Shih-shan Henry Tsai. Maritime Taiwan: Historical Encounters with the East and the West. M.E. Sharpe: Armonk, New York. 2009. 265pages. $24.95.

There is a cultural and intellectual revolution occurring in Taiwan. It is about its national identity.

Supreme Court asked to end Taiwan's "political purgatory" while President Obama remains silent

The United States Supreme Court has now been asked to answer the longstanding 'Taiwan question' that has haunted U.S. foreign policy since World War II. In April, the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals declared Taiwan to be in a state of "political purgatory" and urged President Barack Obama to act "expeditiously" to resolve the matter.

The appellate court declined to interpret the San Francisco Peace Treaty that governs Taiwan saying the issue was a "political matter" outside the scope of the court's authority. President Obama has been silent on Roger Lin, et al vs. United States, which seeks U.S. protection while the formal international legal status of Taiwan is resolved.

The tyrant is back in the hall

In a perfectly apt scene involving barbed wire barricades and hundreds of police officers, National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall was restored yesterday to its original name, the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.

It was no small irony that the reversal occurred almost 22 years to the day since the lifting of martial law, declared in 1949 by dictator Chiang Kai-shek himself. What followed were decades of the White Terror, during which thousands of Taiwanese and Chinese who opposed Chiang’s rule were murdered — both at home and abroad — or disappeared.

Taiwanese should blame themselves

The Chinese-language Commercial Times published an editorial on July 9 titled “Why has the scale of Taiwan’s exports decreased to half of South Korea’s?” The editorial said the government’s biased tax incentives and industrial policies have caused an excessive concentration of resources in the semiconductor and flat-panel sectors. This means Taiwan is easily affected by shifts in the economic climate, and this is also why the recovery of Taiwan’s exports has fallen behind South Korea and other major trading countries.
