«Maps out why the world should care about the self-ruled island … t the heart of The Trouble with Taiwan is a detailed picture of the island as it is today, and how the political, economic and social paths have affected the lives of Taiwanese citizens.»

South China Morning Post

«The Trouble with Taiwan provides a lively briefing for what could be the next crisis to face Xi Jinping … The authors point out that, for all the rhetoric from Beijing, the island has only been ruled directly from Beijing for brief periods in its history.»

Financial Times

«Taiwan is one of the most important but least understood places in Asia today. This book provides an invaluable introduction to this potential flashpoint for future conflict between the US and China, while centring Taiwanese people in their own story as they attempt to take control of their own futures in the face of ever greater pressure from Beijing. As China’s military and diplomatic power grows, Taiwan is on the frontline in standing up to Beijing and asserting its rights for autonomy and democracy.»

James Griffiths, author of The Great Firewall of China: How To Build and Control an Alternative Vers

«/i>‘By marshalling history, biography, internal politics, and international affairs, Brown and Wu Tzu-hui address the very ‘trouble’ they describe: they help situate a Taiwan whose “place” in the world is otherwise plagued by uncertainty.»

Benjamin Zawacki, author of Thailand: Shifting Ground Between the US and a Rising China

«Fresh and authoritative, written with brio and precision.»

Thomas Plate, author of Yo-Yo Diplomacy

James Griffiths, author of The Great Firewall of China

«‘Brown and Wu Tzu-hui help situate a Taiwan whose “place” in the world is otherwise plagued by uncertainty.’»
