Culture and Behavior in Hawaii: An Annotated Bibliography. Hawaii Series Number 3.
Rubano, Judith, Comp.
The multi-ethnic character of the population of Hawaii has long attracted students of the behavioral sciences. Many of these scientists, and especially the visiting researchers, have encountered difficulty in obtaining or even locating literature specific to Hawaii and relevant to their fields of scientific interest. This bibliography is an effort to correct that situation by bringing together materials which relate to the attitudes and behavior of the people of Hawaii, particularly those attitudes and behaviors which have some ethnic relevance. A word is in order regarding those materials which were deliberately omitted from this bibliography. Among these are brief reports of demographic data which include statistics but omit interpretation or analysis. Reports of economic conditions in Hawaii, many of which contain detailed socio-demographic data, have been published annually since 1971 by the Bank of Hawaii. Materials reporting ethnic differentiation in the incidence of illnesses and disease have not been deliberately sought out except where recognized specialists have suggested the significance of psycho-cultural factors. The compilation of linguistics materials is not as complets as that of two rather recently published bibliographies devoted entirely to this subject. Works of a purely historical nature have been omitted. Newspaper and popular magazine articles have been excluded from this bibliography. This bibliography originated as a research project under the direction of Professor William P. Lebra, who conceived the idea of the bibliographic series of which it is a part. (Author/JM)
