Identity Politics and Foreign Policy: Taiwan’s Relations with China and Japan, 1895–2012
Yinan He explores how identity narratives have shaped Taiwan’s foreign policy toward China and Japan. The author argues that the political discourse of the two “others” deﬁning Taiwan’s national identity has been frequently employed by political elites battling over whom the Taiwanese are and where their future lies. She claims that Taiwan’s neutrality depends upon Beijing maintaining a moderate approach toward Taiwan and upon stable Sino-Japanese relations.
