The contentious dispute between Beijing and Taipei about Taiwan's international status entails strongly held, but erroneous, views of China, Taiwan, and the course of history. Beijing's argument that Taiwan is a renegade province is not more persuasive than Taipei's assertion that it is the government of a sovereign state. However, Beijing's political clout is greater than Taipei's, so Beijing has intimidated the international community from accepting Taiwan as a state. Nevertheless, examining legal and historical factors to reconsider the rationale in both Beijing and Taipei makes evident that Taiwan should be viewed as a state.
