Book Series - Taiwan and World Affairs


About this book series

Taiwan is a significant world economy. A major trading nation, but for geopolitics it would most likely be a member of the G20.

Taiwanese companies supply more than half the world’s total production of semiconductors and are crucial to the global value chain especially China and South East Asia.

While there are already some book series devoted to Taiwan, these focus on domestic matters, such as Taiwanese politics and society and to date there is no series that looks at Taiwan’s contribution to, or place in the world more broadly.

Despite, or because of, its diplomatic isolation, interest in this is growing, however, and this series is intended to fill a lacuna in the current academic coverage of Taiwan.
