Christian Schafferers work looks beyond regional and global causes to pinpoint the true indigenous foundations of Taiwans and on a broader scale East Asias political development, and examines the pivotal importance of Taiwanese local elections in the islands democratization process.

Based on extensive research and in-depth interviews with leading Taiwanese politicians and political scientists, the book provides a detailed history of Taiwans electoral experience from the turn of the twentieth century, through the Kuomintang regime, to the present day. This is supplemented by a focused case study of the watershed 1997 Taiwanese local elections and their profound impact on the Taiwanese political landscape.
