The U.S.-Taiwan-China Relationship in International Law and Policy
Reviews and Awards
"Professor Chen provides a sophisticated political-legal analysis of Taiwan's international status that will inform readers on all sides of this issue, together with a deeply informed brief for its independent statehood on both political and legal grounds. A valuable feature of the book is its detailed analysis of the origins and meaning of the Taiwan Relations Act, by which Congress set down the enduring principles that govern American Taiwan policy." -Andrew J. Nathan, Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science, Columbia University "
"A most profound and important exposition of the evolution of a free and democratic Taiwan committed to human rights and political self-determination for twenty-three million Taiwanese; significant past, present, and projected relations with the United States and China; and common interests and opportunities regarding peace, human security, economic progress, and human dignity in the Asia Pacific region. This timely study also provides compelling recommendations for political action, including a plebiscite through which the Taiwanese people can 'define their international status.'" -Jordan J. Paust, Law Center, University of Houston "
