BEIJING, July 17 (Xinhua) -- A set of books in six volumes on Taiwan history has been published by the Fujian People's Publishing House and was made public in Beijing on Saturday.
The books were jointly compiled by scholars from both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
The six-volume publication records the comprehensive history of Taiwan, spanning from ancient times to the modern era. It presents a panoramic picture of the island covering politics, economy, society, and culture.
The books provide evidence that throughout history, the destiny of Taiwan has always been closely connected with its motherland and that compatriots from both sides of the Taiwan Strait are of one family.
"The book compilation has demonstrated a sense of historical responsibility of scholars on both sides of the Strait," said Yang Yizhou, vice president of the All-China Federation of Taiwan Compatriots, expressing expectations for further cross-Strait cooperation in historical studies. Enditem
