Lee Teng-hui and Taiwan's Quest for Identity
Shih-shan Henry TsaiISBN: 1403970564;
Book Description The book is an account of Taiwan's evolving national consciousness told through the biography of its former President Lee Teng-hui--the central figure in the island's political transformation over the past two decades. In describing the broader historical and social context of the various stages of Lee's life, the book also analyzes Taiwan's own evolution during the past century as a Japanese colony, a Leninist party-state dictatorship, and then an American-inspired fledgling democracy.
