  • in both licensed and translated books, and

  • imported academic and educational books.

  • Every year Taiwan publishes thousands of new

  • titles of trade books, and the US supplied about

  • 50% of the demand. In recent

  • years, the business and sales of imported academic

  • digital databases created by the US company has been

  • booming, driven by the popularity of
