Dr. Winston Wong’s book, “Taiwan – The Lost Country,” was published in the United Kingdom in 2008. Inspired by U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s famous words – “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” Dr. Wong describes the challenges facing Taiwan in the 21st century, proposing realistic solutions.
Before writing the book, Dr. Wong spent the better part of a year consulting experts and academics on how to move forward with the future development of Taiwan, the country of his birth and his heart. It is Dr. Wong’s hope that the suggestions laid out in “Taiwan – The Lost Country” will be a part of his contribution to the betterment of Taiwan.
“Taiwan – The Lost Country” opens with a discussion of domestic political issues within Taiwan, and then looks at its past and future relationship with the People’s Republic of China. Dr. Wong then covers a wide range of additional topics, including economic revival and regional development. The book closes with Dr. Wong’s suggestions for enhancing freedom, prosperity, and equality in Taiwan and improving its stature in the world community.
