From A Native Daughter

Colonialism and Sovereignty in Hawai'i
By Huanani Kay Trask

Alice walker wrote about the first edition of the book that it changes the way you think about Hawai'i and "all the lands seized by force forever". This was definitely true for me after reading the second edition. It definitely made me less ignorant about the history of Hawai'i, about its culture, and about the effects of the US takeover, and extensive tourism, on this culture. This book is a must read to anyone who considers going to Hawai'i. [272 pp.]
