China and Taiwan in Latin America and the Caribbean : History, Power Rivalry, and Regional Implications, Hardback Book

China and Taiwan in Latin America and the Caribbean : History, Power Rivalry, and Regional Implications Hardback

Edited by Cassandra R. Veney, Sabella O. Abidde

Part of the Studies of the Americas series



The book provides an examination of the evolution of China and Taiwan after 1949.

This starting point situates the contestation for power between the two entities in the region after Taipei was recognized by the international community as the representative of China.

The ramifications for Taiwan were drastic as country after country switched its recognition to China including those in the Caribbean and Latin America.  Taiwan was able to maintain diplomatic relations with several countries in both regions through diplomatic strategies including providing financial assistance.  This has waned over time considering China’s economic rise to power and Western Europe’s and the United States’ fall in global economic and political prestige and power. This book discusses China’s and Taiwan’s continuing engagement with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean with a particular emphasis on the sharp rise in trade between China and the two regions.  China’s foreign policyagenda, and how Taiwan reacts to China’s policies, are also examined.
