Taiwan History Book Reaches its 4th Edition
Sunday October 05, by Jerome F. Keating Ph.D.
The 4th edition of "Island in the Stream, a Quick Case Study of Taiwan's Complex History" is fresh off the presses and available at bookstores in Taiwan for the modest price of NT$200 (US$ 6.50). We are proud of this book since not many history books reach their fourth edition and certainly few if any other histories of Taiwan reach that stage. This edition continues with the tradition of having provocative questions at the end of each chapter to encourage readers to examine and probe more deeply into the many challenges facing the hard-won democracy of this island nation as well as the ways others have tried to twist and influence its history. For those in the United States and around the world, we are increasing our efforts to make it more readily available there. If you have trouble getting it, let us know.
