How did Taiwan become a key economic and political player on the global stage, producing breakthroughs so impressive they have been called “miracles”?  Shelley Rigger’s new book links these accomplishments to Taiwan’s determined society, vibrant culture, and unique history. Drawing on arts, economics, politics, and international relations, Rigger explores Taiwan's importance to China, the United States, and the world. After considering where Taiwan may be headed in its wary standoff with China, she traces how the focus of Taiwan’s domestic politics has shifted to a Taiwan-centered strategy.
