Chapter 1 serves as a conceptual introduction for the book. It defines the key concepts of the national boundary/identity question and democratic governance (or management, or approach, or solution) related to the national boundary/identity question. It develops an analytical classification of different kinds of national boundary/identity or membership issues, qualifies the project of democratic management, and spells out the concrete components of democratic governance. It explores why democratic management of the boundary issue is desirable, and defends the universal project of democratic governance. This chapter is an intellectual foundation for the quest for democratic governance with regards to the Taiwan and Tibet issues.

Keywords:   the national boundary/identity question, democratic governance (or management, or approach, or solution), the project of democratic management, components of democratic governance
