This book focuses on the development of Taiwan's long-standing National Scholarship Program for Overseas Study between 1955 and 2000. The National Scholarship Program can be seen as Taiwan's governmental pursuit of strategic modernization for national and social development. Strategic modernization does not necessarily imply a linear, progressive, and technological modernity; but should be viewed as an adjustable, flexible, and sustainable effort that transforms and assists a nation, like Taiwan, to adapt itself within its constrained and changing post-colonial condition. This view of strategic modernization is based upon an interrogation of the discourses surrounding the scholarship program, using post-colonial theories as a referential framework. The research includes an ethnographic analysis of discourse, investigating the program from two perspectives: the researcher's critical discourse analysis of historical texts, and the narratives provided by program stakeholders. The juxtaposition of these two discursive perspectives not only reveals different facets of the program, but more importantly, tracks the dynamic and constantly unfolding interwoven complex of political, economic and cultural threads that have rarely been considered together.

"This book immerses the reader in the discourse of modernizing and internationalizing Taiwanese society from 1955 to 2000. Chen has unpacked the complexity of the Ministry's programs for sending students abroad for higher education, drawing upon 'the diverse perspectives to be found in transnational socioeconomic structures, political ideologies, cultural exchanges in the terrain of education and the dynamics of these various sources of power.' The result is a book about the meaning of education, but also about the intrigues of decolonialization, Cold War stand-off, political negotiation, and human aspiration." (Robert E. Stake, Professor Emeritus of Education, Educational Psychology, Director of the Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign) "This book immerses the reader in the discourse of modernizing and internationalizing Taiwanese society from 1955 to 2000.
