This one-volume handbook explores the history of Taiwan, from its prehistory to its Japanese colonization to its tumultuous relationship with China in the 21st century.

This addition to the Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations series focuses on significant events in the history of Taiwan, from ancient history to the present. Following the general series format, the book opens with the series foreword and a chronology of key events in Taiwan's history.

Eleven chapters follow, with half of the book focusing on the modern historic events that occurred post-World War II. Chapters examine topics and eras including Pre-history and Early Civilization to 1100; Formosa: The Dutch Colony, 1622-1662; Cold War Island: Conflicts and Control, 1950-1972; and Democratization and Independence Movement, 1996-2004. A glossary of terms and annotated bibliography rounds out the work, making it an ideal resource for high school and undergraduate students as well as general readers who are looking for an introduction to Taiwan's history.
