ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of U.S. historian George H. Kerr's work on the history of the Ryukyu Islands and Okinawa, Japan. Author of the book "Ryukyu: Kingdom and Province Before 1945," Kerr is considered the father of Taiwanese independence since he was a specialist in the Taiwanese military and government. His work is seen as a rearrangement of fragmented memory to justify a separate people, such as the Ryukyuans and the Taiwanese, from the nation-state to which they belong.
