Summary "Outcasts of Empire unveils the causes and consequences of capitalism’s failure to zbatter down all Chinese wallsy in modern Taiwan. Adopting micro- and macrohistorical perspectives, Paul D. Barclay argues that the interpreters, chiefs, and trading-post operators who mediated state-society relations on Taiwan’s zsavage bordery during successive Qing and Japanese regimes rose to prominence and faded to obscurity in concert with a series of zlong nineteenth centuryy global transformations. Superior firepower and large economic reserves ultimately enabled Japanese statesmen to discard these mediators and sideline a cohort of indigenous headmen who played both sides of the fence to maintain their chiefly status. Even with these reluctant zalliesy marginalized, however, the colonial state lacked sufficient resources to integrate Taiwan’s indigenes into its disciplinary apparatus. The colonial state therefore created the Indigenous Territory, which exists to this day as a legacy of Japanese imperialism, local initiatives, and the global commodification of culture.
