Sayonara to the Lee Teng-hui Era brings together the most prominent American, Taiwanese, and Chinese scholars in the field and addresses very crucial issues involved in Taiwan's democratization. The book is pluralist in methodology, ranging from content analysis and historical elaboration to game theoretical formulations. The combination of qualitative and quantitative studies enriches the understanding of the political intrigues of this era. Its wealth of data and careful examination of various issues from different theoretical approaches make this volume an essential guide for courses and research. In sum, the book reflects a commitment to a theoretically sophisticated and empirically based synthetic study of Taiwan's political development in the 1990s.
