Colonial Project, National Game: A History of Baseball in Taiwan (Asia Pacific Modern)

by Andrew Morris (Author)

Synopsis

Introduced by the Japanese colonial government at the turn of the century, baseball was expected to 'civilize' and modernize Taiwan's Han Chinese and Austronesian Aborigine populations. This work traces the game's social, ethnic, political, and cultural significance since its introduction on the island more than one hundred years ago.
