520    "Between 10% and 20% of marriages in Taiwan involve the 
       union of a Taiwanese national with a Chinese immigrant, 
       with as many as 13,000 cross-Strait couples registering 
       new unions each year. Exceptional States examines new 
       configurations of marriage, immigration, and governance 
       emerging in an increasingly mobile Asia where Cold War 
       legacies continue to shape contemporary political 
       struggles over sovereignty and citizenship. This book 
       poignantly and respectfully documents the struggle of 
       these immigrant Chinese women as they seek belonging, 
       acceptance, and recognition in their new land. The women's
       experiences parallel Taiwan's own desire to receive 
       recognition from the international community as a 
       sovereign nation-state. By tracing these political 
       parallels, the book shows how Chinese marital immigrants 
       are affected by Taiwan's own uncertain political status in
       relation to China in ways that marital immigrants from 
       other Asian countries are not. Exceptional States 
       illustrates the social, political and subjective 
       consequences of immigrants who are living with this 
       exceptional status. The book concludes with a discussion 
       of how Chinese spouses' efforts to create a sense of 
       belonging for themselves across the fluid waters of the 
       Taiwan Strait offer possible insights into solving 
       Taiwan's current sovereignty challenges"--Provided by
