The Mapping of Taiwan spans centuries in its global scope and provides a vital, visual frame-work for those interested in Taiwan and Taiwan Studies. From jade to deerskins, tea, and camphor and ultimately to motherboards and computer chips, the story of Taiwan and its mapping is one of trade and discovery. How and why the mapping of Taiwan took place and how it was affected by other stories beyond its control is an interconnected story that cannot be seen in isolation. No man is an island, and in today’s world of global economics, no island can be an island. The Mapping of Taiwan demonstrates how and why so many countries desired Taiwan’s geography and the commodities it contained. From this, Taiwanese can realize the challenge and complex vitality of their identity, their democracy and their destiny. With their new-won democracy they can then ponder the words of Hillel, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?”
