BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brooklyn-based author Nathaniel Altman is proud to announce the launch of Taiwan Matters (www.ximetru.com), an independent information site dedicated to a free and independent Taiwan.
Although no bigger than the state of Maryland, Taiwan is a place of tremendous cultural diversity, extraordinary landscapes, varied cuisines, as well as Asia’s most vibrant democracy. A self-governing de facto country for more than 70 years, Taiwan is a world leader in semiconductor technology and scientific innovation. Taiwan is regarded by Communist China as a breakaway province to be reclaimed by force if necessary.
According to Altman, “Taiwan has been a political pawn in the drama of international politics since the Cold War began. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine beginning in February 2022 – with the support of the government of Communist China – the future of a free, independent and democratic Taiwan has become more threatened than ever before.”
Taiwan Matters is intended help interested readers learn more about Taiwan. Altman adds, “As we get to know a people and their homeland, we feel a closer connection to them. This may inspire us to care about their lives and be concerned about their future. At this critical time in Taiwan’s history, Westerners especially need to learn more about Taiwan and its people, history and culture. Hopefully this may lead to a greater appreciation of Taiwan and its unique and important position in world affairs.”
Based primarily on Altman’s acclaimed book “Taiwan: Fifty Things You Didn’t Know,” the goal of this website is to offer a unique, comprehensive and intimate portrait of Taiwan, with information about Taiwan’s history, politics, cultural traditions, institutions and things uniquely Taiwanese. It also includes links to Taiwan news, culture and tourism sites. Based on more than a dozen extended visits to Taiwan over a 25-year period, this blog reveals little-known facts about one of the most fascinating – yet least understood – countries in the world.
