Abstract

Beijing's strategy of national reunification with Taiwan has been a mixture of military coercion and peaceful inducement. Coercive strategy relies primarily upon the use or the threat of use of force. It could take the form of military actions aiming at the conquest of Taiwan, or military brinkmanship using military force in an exemplary and demonstrative manner. In contrast, peaceful inducement appeals to cross-strait political negotiations andeconomic and cultural exchanges to bind Taiwan's hands from seeking independence and to build goodwill and momentum for eventual national reunification. And yet, military coercion and peaceful inducement are two sides of thesame coin, coercive logic is embedded in Beijing's inducements, which can thus be termed "peaceful offence. " Beijing has placed priority on either coercion or inducement at different times according to changes in China's domestic politics and Beijing's perception of the international environment and Taiwan's internal politics. This oscillation sustains an inherent and dangerous dynamic that could drive cross-strait relations into a vicious cycleof peace and coercion if Beijing and Taipei cannot negotiate and stabilizethe relationship across the Taiwan Strait.
