US-China-Taiwan Relations Recommended Readings

I have been asking around for lists of a few books that other people interested in the field of US-China-Taiwan relations (or MeiZhongTai for all of you Chinese speakers) would recommend as the best books for the novice who wants to better understand the field.

The first reply came from The View from Taiwan, who offers his recommendations in the form of a blogpost entitled 'Ten Books on Taiwan'. In the comments section of his post, some of his readers offered their thoughts for additional books, so be sure to scroll all the way down.

Hopefully some others will soon offer their lists, but I'll go ahead and offer mine:

Richard of Peking Duck offers his picks:

Dr. Robert Farley of Lawyers, Guns, and Money offers a few additions to the list:

Any other bloggers who wish to add a list to the collection can post them at their blog and e-mail a link or just e-mail me their lists at meizhongtai[at]gmail[dot]com.

Any readers who want to add to the list, feel free to do so in the comments section.

Updated to include a list from Peking Duck and another from Lawyers, Guns, and Money.
