Abstract

According to Mark Harrison, a senior lecturer in Chinese studies at the University of Tasmania, much of the vocabulary used in discussions about Taiwan "describe a world of US hegemony, the Cold War, a rising China, and US-China relations," which comes at the expense of a more Taiwan-centric perspective. It ignores the legacy of events such as Japan’s 50-year occupation of Taiwan through the first half of the 20th century, he added.
