Rate this:
The relationship between China and Taiwan is considered in this book. It examines Taiwan's history, and considers the background of the Nationalist party, or Kuomintang, which has ruled Taiwan since 1945, and claims to have had the right to rule all of China since 1928.

Taiwan has been described as a ticking time bomb. For all the fratricidal strife that has scarred Chinese politics since 1949, Peking's leaders have never wavered from their commitment to reunification with Taiwan. There, 20 million people have witnessed one of the great economic miracles of the post-war era. But their government is founded on a constitution that claims legitimacy over all of China. In this provocative study, Simon Long looks at the historical background to China's claim to sovereignty, and at the roots of Taiwan's economic triumphs.
