Politics in Taiwan: Voting for Democracy

Synopsis

Politics in Taiwan is an accessible and highly readable survey of the Taiwanese political situation spanning from 1949 to the present. With a focus on the issue of democratization, Shelley Rigger covers Taiwan's complicated and unique political history, and tells the story of how the Taiwanese, demanding a stronger voice in politics, drove their government to reinvent itself on a democratic blueprint.

This book shows that Taiwan, unlike other countries, avoided serious economic disruption and social conflict, and arrived at its goal of multi-party competition with little bloodshed.
