Words across the Taiwan Strait : a critique of Beijing's "White paper" on China's reunification by John Franklin Copper( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1993, the Taiwan Affairs Office and Information Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China published a document called "The Taiwan Question and the Reunification of china." This 24-page pamphlet subsequently became known as Beijing's "White Paper" on Taiwan. Strongly advocating Taiwan's reunification with mainland China, the paper appeared to reflect the People's Republic of China's opposition to the Republic of China making a bid to participate in the United Nations or other international governmental organizations. In this volume, John F. Copper offers his analysis and critique of Beijing's "White Paper." Included in the appendices are the text of the original white paper, Taiwan's response to the document, and Taiwan's guidelines for national unification. -- publisher description

Consolidating Taiwan's democracy by John Franklin Copper( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Consolidating Taiwan's Democracy assesses the often-heard argument among Taiwan scholars that a change of ruling parties - first in the executive branch of government and then the legislative branch - proves that Taiwan's democratization has been "finalized" or its democracy consolidated. The author contends that other factors are also relevant and that problems Taiwan has experienced since 2000 also casts doubt on this argument."--Jacket

This book focuses on the KMT's reputation for economic management, democratization and good leadership that made its return to power in 2008 possible.

Taiwan's 2001 legislative, magistrates and mayors election : further consolidating democracy? by John Franklin Copper( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In December 2001, Taiwan held an election that many observers said, in addition to the 2000 election that resulted in opposition party leader Chen Shui-bian winning the presidency, consolidated its democracy. This election made President Chen's party, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the largest party in the legislature and gave him an opportunity to implement his agenda. President Chen had not been able to do so previously due to the opposition's large legislative majority and the political gridlock that had plagued Taiwan for some months. This book examines the political milieu in which the campaign was conducted, the candidates, party platforms and strategies, the campaign, and the results of the election. It also assesses the domestic and international responses to the election and its political ramifications." "The author argues that the DPP won using questionable tactics, thus diminishing its otherwise significant victory while creating doubts about the "Taiwan political miracle." The KMT lost badly. The People First Party, created by James Soong after the 2000 presidential election, performed very well in this election. Former president Lee Teng-hui helped found a new party shortly before this election to help President Chen by drawing support away from the KMT; it performed well." "The author concludes that the election mirrored Taiwan's new four-party system, which is divided into two camps. While the "green" bloc (the DPP and Lee's new party) performed well, the "blue" team (the KMT and Soong's party) won a majority. Taiwan's party politics, the author says, remain in flux." "Readership: Academics, graduate students and undergraduates with an interest in Taiwan and Taiwan-China."--BOOK JACKET
