Product Description

China has nuclear weapons capable of reaching America, prompting a Chinese general to ask, "Would the U.S. sacrifice Los Angeles to protect Taipei?"

Following 1949's communist victory in China, Chiang Kai-shek and his defeated government fled to Taiwan. In contrast to the ongoing oppressive rule of the Chinese government, Taiwan went on to become a vibrant democracy.

Three decades later, Jimmy Carter betrayed Taiwan by breaking diplomatic relations, instead establishing them with China. Though relations between the U.S. and Taiwan remained cordial, a belligerent Beijing continues to see Taiwan as a renegade province.

In the past five years, a nuclear-armed China has run 11 military exercises simulating the invasion of Taiwan. At the same time, the Taiwan Relations Act affirms the U.S. defense of Taiwan, making the question of sacrificing Los Angeles for Taiwan not just one of political posturing.

Utilizing his long-held access to top officials in the U.S. and Taiwan, Bruce Herschensohn shows why Taiwan will remain a critical theater for American policy in the 21st century.

"Bruce Herschensohn is an astute observer of the current world scene. In 'Taiwan: The Threatened Democracy,' he sheds new light on one of the Cold War's most intractable – and dangerous – legacies."
- Rush Limbaugh, the most listened-to nationally syndicated talk show host

"Bruce Herschensohn has long watched China – as did his friend Richard Nixon – and has always had the freedom of the Chinese near the top of his concerns. He was one of the few who saw the PRC's plans for Hong Kong clearly, and his observations on the future of Taiwan will be sober and accurate, as well as highly readable."
- Hugh Hewitt, nationally syndicated talk show host
