This paper traces the build-up of tension that has led to the current conflict between China and Taiwan. The writer claims that after the first presidential elections in Taiwan, China issued a report warning that any indication of action towards independence or even delay in negotiations toward reunification, could lead to a military reaction. The paper traces the conflict that ensued and attempts at reconciliation.

From the Paper:

"While China has been adding to its arsenal, there had been no indication of widespread military spending or increases, probably due to the fact that China is concentrating on maintaining her economic growth. Deng Xiaoping's strategy is to strengthen the country through economic development by encouraging investment and infrastructure improvements. Still spending about a tenth of what the U.S. spends, or less than 2 percent of the gross domestic product, China's policies are widely divergent from the Soviet union's spending 20 percent of its gross domestic product on its military at the height of the cold war."
