Political Science: The State of the Discipline
This landmark volume is authored by 28 authoritative scholars to review the development of political science in Taiwan. It is the second comprehensive review of the various sub-fields in the discipline in the fine tradition of its precursor Political Science: Entering the Twenty-first Century that was published in 2000. It contains 21 chapters that fall into six categories: political theory and methodology, comparative politics, international and cross-Strait relations, public administration, Taiwan politics, and politics of mainland China. The book summaries the development of the sub-fields, provides rich literature review and reference lists, points out possible development in the future, and offers comprehensive evaluation.
For researchers and teachers of political science, students in the discipline, and general audience interested in Taiwan’s political studies, Political Science: The State of the Discipline is simply a must-read.
