A History of Hawai'i.
Menton, Linda; Tamura, Eileen
This volume examines the history of the State of Hawaii. The book is organized, as most history books are, chronologically; however, it also is arranged thematically. Four aspects of Hawaiian history are divided into three time periods. Unit 1, "Precontact to 1900," addresses that era from the political, economic, social, and land perspectives. As the book explains, that period culminated in the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893. The same themes are examined in Unit 2, "1900 to 1945," and in Unit 3, "1945 to Present." Unit 2 begins with the organization of Hawaii as a U.S. territory in 1900 and concludes with the end of World War II. As its title suggests, Unit 3 examines contemporary history. The book includes listings of maps, tables, and graphs with page references, an afterword, glossary, list of references, and a detailed index. (SG)
