Taiwan: Where is the mainland?

Categories: East Asia, Taiwan (ROC), International Relations, Language, Politics

Tim Maddog at Taiwan Matters discusses the use of the word “mainland” by people in Taiwan [1] to refer to China. He argues it is part of an indoctrination effort by the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT). He has translated an article which discusses how the use of the word affects people's ability to form their own clear national identity.
