Paul D. Barclay, professor and head of the History Department, recently updated and expanded his 2018 book Outcasts of Empire: Japan’s Rule on Taiwan’s “Savage Border,” 1874-1945 for a Chinese-language edition. The prolific Taiwanese poet and literary critic Walis Nokan wrote that “it could be the most profound, rigorous, and informative book I have read in recent years about the Japanese Empire’s rule over Taiwan’s indigenous peoples.” The first print-run sold out in March. The 535-page tome is now in its second printing. Learn more on Lafayette’s Bookshelf website.
