Abstract

This paper presents Western analysts and policy makers with a brief analysis of the importance of the trilateral Washington-Taipei-Beijing relationship, and argues for a reconceptualization of that relationship to factor in the polarization of cultural identity in those three nations and how this finds expression in foreign policy on the cross-strait issue, among other areas. The intent herein is to make a case for the adoption of a multi-theoretical approach that injects a culturalist interpretation of the fundamental schisms present in each society that influence their respective worldviews and relations to other powers.
