Taiwan: name-rectification

Mutantfrog blogs about the politics of name-rectification in Taiwan. Michael Turton from the View from Taiwan believes that “in any normal postcolonial state these monuments to the previous power would be either rehabilitated or destroyed. That is the process that the DPP is attempting to carry out“.
