"The most important contribution of the manuscript is its analysis of how the state capacity is limited in its attempts to regulate private economic activities in two Chinese societies. It tells a complete story about the failure of the governments in both sides of the Taiwan Strait to constrain/make use of the economic interactions across the Taiwan Strait for their political objectives."
- Suisheng Zhao, Editor, Journal of Contemporary China
"John Tian's book effectively tackles the puzzle of asymmetry in relations across the Taiwan Strait: increasing economic integration and growing political tensions. It takes us through the complex maze of strategic interactions, policy designs and state-business relations between and in the two sides of the Taiwan Strait. It uniquely captures the intriguing logic of interactions between deepening economic interdependence and rising political tension across the Taiwan Strait. It is rich, sophisticated and insightful. It is highly recommended for those who wish to learn more about the Taiwan problem."
