This book's one minus is one inexplicably found in many academic publications nowadays: sloppy and lazy editing. Many proper nouns throughout the book are infected with typos, and the kanji given especially for several of the Japanese names and terms are incorrect or incomplete. This can really be annoying if not maddening for the readers, not to mention misleading for those less familiar with the subject or the languages involved. Other than that one gripe, though, I highly recommend this fine book, most especially of course if your interests are in Taiwanese History, Japanese History, or Colonial Studies. If the study of literature is your chief concern as it is mine, I imagine you'll find much of interest here as well. Check it out!
