Words across the Taiwan Strait: a critique of Beijing's "White paper" on China's reunification

Front Cover
University Press of America, 1995 - History - 127 pages
In August 1993, the Taiwan Affairs Office and Information Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China published a document called _The Taiwan Question and the Reunification of China._ This 24-page pamphlet, or booklet, subsequently became known as Beijing's _White Paper_ on Taiwan. Strongly advocating Taiwan's reunification with mainland China, the paper appeared to reflect the People's Republic of China's opposition to the Republic of China making a bid to participate in the United Nations or other international governmental organizations. In this volume, John Copper offers his analysis and critique of Beijing's _White Paper._ Included in the appendices are the text of the original white paper, Taiwan's response to the document and Taiwan's guidelines for national unification.
