Taiwan Studies is a growing field with increasing influence. The series, founded by J. Bruce Jacobs†, is to publish high quality research which breaks new ground and/or gives new insights to Taiwan. Monographs and edited books from all disciplines, as well as cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research are welcomed. The editors of the series are also keen to see submissions of translated work, either directly or in scholarly methodology, that would welcome the Taiwan intellectual world into English. In addition to this, comparative research where Taiwan is an important component is also welcome. The series aims to reach academics, informed readers, as well as policy makers.
