あらすじ・解説

If you want to discover the captivating history of Taiwan, then pay attention....
 

The history of Taiwan is astonishing. Politically, Taiwan - was a warlord culture. The Portuguese, when passing by the island in the mid-1540s, called the island “Ilha Formosa,” which means “Beautiful Island”.
 

Then the Dutch came in the 1620s, searching for a base of operations for the Dutch East India Company.
 

Then the Han Chinese came in the 17th century. Many of these Han Chinese were refugees from the wars in China. This influx caused an explosive reaction.
 

And then came the Japanese in 1894! Taiwan was subjugated to a Japanese program of inculcation. All the people of Taiwan had to learn Japanese, and Shinto shrines cropped up everywhere.
 

Then came Chiang Kai-shek in 1949. He awakened the conflict between the vestiges of Japanese influences and the Republic of China.
 

Having been inflicted with so many cultural and political invasions, a new breed of Taiwanese people rose up, and they wanted freedom from the oppression they had faced for decades, although there were some who wanted socialism and communism. Taiwan is not even recognized as an independent sovereign by every country in the world today.
 

Listen Taiwan’s story - a story of an island that walks a tightrope searching for its identity, balance, and fate.
 

In History of Taiwan: A Captivating Guide to Taiwanese History and the Relationship with the People's Republic of China, you will discover topics such as: 

  • Formosa: Beautiful island
  • The arrival of the Chinese and their religion
  • The Dutch trading years
  • The Ming, the Qing, and Japan: The war years
  • Japanese Taiwan
  • Taiwan after World War II
  • And much, much more!

So if you want to learn more about the history of Taiwan, then buy this book today!

Wavetop History

Was hoping for a deeper history lesson. I am not a fluent Mandarin speaker but some of the names were absolutely butchered - Mao Zedong somehow become Mo (like in the 3 stooges). Good voice but some coaching on pronunciation would have been helpful. Also, several times there was a clear pause after a mispronounciation - no big deal, just edit it out.

It was OK.

Pretty sure this was a high school term paper originally. Learned a little, but it was tough to finish.

Questionable Benefit

I was looking for a quick primer on Taiwanese history, but I’m left wondering if I got it.
Many pronunciations were badly wrong. The WW2 portion went on strange tangents and was laughably wrong in many respects. Knowing how incorrect the WW2 history was made me question how accurate the rest of the history was.

Badly researched.

The book itself jumped around to different topics and discussed other countries more than Taiwan. While these countries are part of the story they are only a part of it. The topics about Taiwan seemed superficial at best.

The audio was worse. There was absolutely no research into the pronunciation of non English words and even words and names that are known in the United States were pronounced improperly. There were also several points where the reader sighs, fumbles his words, and repeats himself.

Know one should be charged for an audio book of this poor quality. $5 was too much.

Does it’s job, but the guy can’t pronounce Chinese

The book isn’t jaw dropping, but it gets the job done of giving a good summary of Taiwan’s history. The narrator is also a good reader, but the performance is hindered greatly because the reader doesn’t know how to pronounce any of the Chinese terms or names.

Brief and informative

very much worth a listen, the author covers history from an aboriginal period through the modern era with enough focus on events since 1949 to help you understand current events.

Narrator and the book are just OK that's all

I love Taiwan and the history that comes from this country but the narrator and the book, in my opinion, was at best OK.

I bought this for my thesis work. Although it is not the type of book I needed, I find it easy to read and provides a counter-reason to al of the scholars that have advocated abandoning Taiwan.

The author of this book had an enormous task ahead of her, which is made clear by how she manages to weave an engaging narrative in such a concise introduction to the history of Taiwan
