When Valleys Turned Blood Red: The Ta-pa-ni Incident in Colonial Taiwan

by Paul R. Katz

When Valleys Turned Blood Red tells the story of colonial policies and their tragic impact on local communities. The Ta-pa-ni Incident of 1915 was the largest single act of Han Chinese armed resistance during the fifty years of Taiwan’s colonial era. More than a thousand villagers and Japanese were killed during the fierce fighting and thousands more were later arrested and made to stand trial.

The 25-page introduction is available online.
