Fall 2016 Orbis CoverThis special edition of Orbis: FPRI’s Journal of World Affairs is dedicated to the topic of in the Tsai Era. Guest editors Jacques deLisle and June Teufel Dreyer have chosen topics that address a myriad of issues: the rise of the Democratic Progressive Party, the fall of the Kuomintang, the effect of social movements, and Taiwan’s relations with other states, among others.
