Brooklyn's Gaupo Publishing Releases a New and Controversial Book About Taiwan

"Taiwan: Fifty Things You Didn't Know."

This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

Brooklyn, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/17/2021 -- Although no bigger than the state of Maryland, Taiwan is a place of tremendous cultural diversity, extraordinary landscapes and varied cuisines as well as Asia's most vibrant democracy. A self-governing de facto country for more than 70 years, Taiwan is a world leader in semiconductor technology and scientific innovation. Regarded by Communist China as a breakaway province to be reclaimed by force if necessary, Taiwan has been a political pawn in the drama of international politics since the Cold War began.

In this timely and informative book, author Nathaniel Altman offers a unique, comprehensive and intimate portrait of Taiwan, with chapters on history, politics, cultural traditions, institutions and things uniquely Taiwanese. Based on more than a dozen extended visits to Taiwan over a 25-year period, this book reveals little-known facts about one of the most fascinating – yet least understood - countries in the world.

"A clear and comprehensive guide to a complex locale." -">Kirkus Reviews
