Product Overview

While political scientists generally see Taiwan as a success state because of its economic modernization and political democratization, this book reinterprets Taiwan''s success from the Confucian and postcolonial perspectives. Democracy (Made in Taiwan) uncovers the hegemonic construction of the myth of the "success state" and challenges political scientists to abandon both the liberal-centrism and state-centrism prevailing in the literature of democratization.
