Richard Kagan is a professor emeritus of East Asian History who has worked on human rights with the United Nations for decades. His undergraduate and master’s degrees were awarded from the University of California Berkeley. He received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1969. He taught East Asian history at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota for 30 years. Among Kagan’s published materials on Taiwan are an introduction to Ross Y. Koen’s book The China Lobby in American Politics (1974), and two seminal biographies of Taiwanese leaders Lee Deng-hui and Chen Shui-bian. Kagan’s first trip to the People’s Republic of China was in January 1975, and since then he has traveled frequently to both mainland China and Taiwan. Kagan testified before the House Sub-Committee on Foreign Affairs in 1980 regarding human rights in Taiwan.
