I was a bit disappointed. The author spills much ink on the historical premise (that Taiwanese people have largely been denied access to their own history), but the history she provides as a remedy is rather superficial and scattered.

I didn't and still don't.

On the other hand, the illust

While the language is a bit formal, the book provides a fair overview of the main events in the Taiwan's overly politicized history.

A pretty exhaustive book about the History of Taiwan, filled with interesting and useful images. A nice read for those interested in the subject.
