Lansdale, PA (Vocus) June 9, 2010
Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of America’s Security and Taiwan’s Freedom, an acclaimed book of speeches and insights authored by Lí Thian-hok.
America’s Security and Taiwan’s Freedom is a collection of speeches and essays that analyzes issues relevant to the future of Taiwan, the island’s relations with the United States and China, and Taiwan’s value as a model of democracy for autocratic China. Organized into three parts, it incorporates the author’s opinions and insights covering the period of 1956-2009. Part I covers speeches and writing from 1997 to 2009, Part II includes selected papers from 1956 to 1960, and Part III compiles excerpts from documents about Taiwan’s international status. Behind it all, this book expresses Lí’s belief that democracy is good for the people of Taiwan and that the democratization of China would be good not only for its people but also for the rest of the world. The book aims to compel policy makers and scholars to ponder the consequences of democratic Taiwan’s annexation by an assertive China.
“Few people are as well qualified to comment on China-Taiwan-US relations as Jay T. Loo, also known as Lí Thian-hok. For over half a century, his articles on the shifting power vectors of the relationship among the three states have appeared in some of the most prestigious journals in the country. This volume, comprising selections from among those writings, will be required reading for those seeking to understand the current triangular configuration and the foundations on which it rests.” - June Teufel Dreyer, Professor of Political Science, University of Miami, Florida.
