Synopsis

Taiwan was an international prize sought by British, American, French, and Japanese adventurers along the South China coast in the nineteenth century. The diplomacy of their governments and China forms a central focus of this study, which provides a framework for understanding the political and legal issues surrounding the China-Taiwan struggle today while filling a serious gap in Taiwanese history.
