The paper focuses mainly on the current developments of the conflict from the perspectives of the four major actors. There is analysis of public opinion in each country and how this may affect their future policy toward the straits conflict. The conclusion provides speculation as to how the conflict may end in the future.

From the Paper:

"With the retreat of Chiang Kai-Shek's KMT nationalist forces to the island of Taiwan in 1949, many thought it was inevitable that the PRC would cross the straits and unify the island with the mainland government. Even the KMT's staunchest defender, the United States, had written off Taiwan and the nationalist movement as a desperate long shot against the larger communist forces. However, the island of Taiwan retained its de-facto independence despite constant threats from the mainland and the loss of formal diplomatic ties with most major nations. The situation in the straits of Taiwan remains sensitive as elections in Taiwan, increased trading, and the emergence of China as a regional power further complicate matters."
