The Columbia Sourcebook of Literary Taiwan free pdf This sourcebook contains more than 160 documents and writings that reflect the development of Taiwanese literature from the early modern period to the twenty-first century. Selections include seminal essays in literary debates, polemics, and other landmark events- interviews, diaries, and letters by major authors- critical and retrospective essays by influential writers, editors, and scholars- transcripts of historical speeches and conferences- literary-society manifestos and inaugural journal prefaces- and governmental policy pronouncements that have significantly influenced Taiwanese literature. These texts illuminate Asia's experience with modernization, colonialism, and postcolonialism- the character of Taiwan's Cold War and post-Cold War cultural production- gender and environmental issues- indigenous movements- and the changes and challenges of the digital revolution. Taiwan's complex history with Dutch, Spanish, and Japanese colonization- strategic geopolitical position vis- -vis China, Japan, and the United States- and status as a hub for the East-bound circulation of technological and popular-culture trends make the nation an excellent case study for a richer understanding of East Asian and modern global relations.
