Taipei, Taiwan

Chiang Kai-Shek died in 1975, and his very own 'Lincoln Memorial' opened in 1980.  Democracy came later that decade when opposition parties were permitted to field candidates for election.  Now, the Taiwanese are revising the history of their one-party past.  What began as Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall became National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall.  [2012]
