    Title: Assessing the landscape of Taiwan and Korean studies in comparison / edited by J. Bruce Jacobs, Niki J.P. Alsford, Sojin Lim.

    Description: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, [2021] | Series: Brill series in Taiwan studies, 2589-3939 ; volume 1 | Includes bibliographical references and index. | Summary: “In Assessing the Landscape of Taiwan and Korean Studies in Comparison, the chapters offer a reflection on the state of the field of Taiwan and Korean Studies. The volume not just identifies their similarities, but also reflects on their differences. Both have national identities formed in a colonial period. The surrender of Japan in 1945 ignited the light of independence for Korea, but this would be ideologically split within five years. For Taiwan, that end forced it into a born-again form of nationalism with the arrival of the Chinese Nationalists”– Provided by publisher.
