A great island off the coast of China, Taiwan has had an eventful history: as a Dutch entrepôt, a Chinese frontier, a Japanese colony, and as a Cold War redoubt for the Chinese Nationalist Party. Today, Taiwan is a prosperous democracy with a thriving civil society. How did it come about? This exhibit tells the epic story.
Professor James Lin offered two guided tours of the Beautiful Taiwan: Taiwan Journey’s to Democracy exhibit on February 23rd and 28th, 2018. Hosted by the University of Washington libraries, the guided tours were followed by brief Q&A sessions.
