Taiwan should be held up as a model of successful and equitable economic development and peaceful democratization, writes East Asia expert Shelley Rigger in her new book "Why Taiwan Matters." We talk to Rigger about the book, and find out why she thinks the U.S. should continue to support the small island nation in its efforts to resist unification on China's terms.

Guests:
