From the American Enterprise Institute's leading Foreign and Defense Policy scholars, Defending Taiwan offers a road map for US policy to deter and defend against Chinese aggression toward Taiwan. The top experts explain why the US should care about Taiwan's sovereignty. They also examine the consequences of not defending the principles that the international order-which has made us safe and prosperous-relies on and what it would take to successfully protect Taiwan and the international order more broadly from Chinese predation. The chapters not only identify the major debates about protecting Taiwan's sovereignty but also provide the trenchant analysis and data to inform American and allied national security strategies. US policy belongs on the side of people seeking freedom. This book is an essential resource for shaping such policy.
