Chinese Studies

New monograph published

Prof. Gunter Schubert has published a new monograph, co-written with his longterm colleague Thomas Heberer from the University of Duisburg-Essen. This book is the result of several years of intensive fieldwork in some 15 provinces and municipalities across China on the political agency of private entrepreneurs and contemporary state-business relations in the PRC. It offers a new perspective on the dynamics of "Chinese capitalism", challenging a number of well-established assumptions on the political influence of private entrepreneurs in a changing Chinese economy.

Taiwan and the "China Impact": New Book Edited by Prof. Gunter Schubert

2015/12/8

Prof. Gunter Schubert has edited a new book within the Research on Taiwan series at Routledge:

Taiwan and the "China Impact": Challenges and Opportunities

About the book:

"This book analyses the ‘China impact’ on Taiwan in terms of its social, political and security space from both an empirical and conceptual point of view. It is the first comprehensive account of China’s multifaceted impact on the politics and society of contemporary Taiwan, written by renowned scholars from Taiwan, Europe and the U.S. The book covers a wide range of topics including Taiwan’s party alignment, elections, generational politics, cross-strait political economy, immigration policy and security. The contributors, political scientists and sociologists, highlight both the dangers and the opportunities of the ‘China impact’ for Taiwan and draw a realistic picture of the island republic’s current situation and future options in the shadow of its giant neighbour.

Based on qualitative and quantitative data, this volume intends to fill a gap in the Taiwan studies field by studying the ‘China impact’ on Taiwan’s politics and society systematically and from a comparative perspective. By doing so, it will be of great interest to students and scholars of Taiwan studies, and East Asian politics and society more generally."
