Abstract "This article highlights the precarious nature of Taiwan's diplomatic relations in Africa. Whereas Cold War rationales initially benefitted Taiwan, economic interests now appear to incentivize African countries to establish relations with China. Through qualitative and quantitative data covering much of the post-World War II era, this analysis argues that economic factors have trumped political ration-ales for Taiwanese-African relations. In addition, this article problematizes both conceptions of diplomatic recognition and Taiwan's enduring relations with Africa." (author's abstract)
