Book Reviews / JESHO 53 (2010) 770-783 775 Tonio ANDRADE, How Taiwan Became Chinese: Dutch, Spanish, and Han Colonization in the Seventeenth Century . New York: Columbia Uni- versity Press, 2008. xxii + 304 pp. ISBN: 978-0-231-12855-1 (hbk.). $60.00 / £35.50. Tonio Andrade’s e-book How Taiwan Became Chinese: Dutch, Spanish, and Han Colonization in the Seventeenth Century (New York: Columbia Uni- versity Press, 2007) is a superb monograph. In this review I will explore how it evolved, what it is about, and why it is as important as it is. This book has its own interesting history that demonstrates its author’s willingness to be on the cutting edge of scholarship in the new millen- nium. It had its origins in Andrade’s dissertation, “Commerce, Culture, and Conﬂict: Taiwan under European Rule, 1623-1662” (Yale University, May 2001), an award winning eﬀort honored with the Hans Gatzke Prize in May of 2001. A year later Andrade won a Gutenberg-e Prize, from the American Historical Association. According to the instructions given to those who win the prize, the dissertation was to be revised and then pub- lished as an e-book by Columbia University Press when those revisions were completed.
