Categories: East Asia, China, Taiwan (ROC), History, Politics

At The China Beat Paul Katz writes about the controversy that erupted [1] over an online poll to find the most influential figures in the hundred years of the Republic of China (ROC). The poll included Chinese Communist Party leaders such as Deng Xiaoping and Mao Zedong.
