Hawaii Chronicles II: Contemporary Island History from the Pages of Honolulu Magazine
- About the Book
The first volume of Hawaii Chronicles presented little known, yet highly interesting historical facts about Hawaii that originally appeared in the pages of Honolulu magazine, the successor to Paradise of the Pacific and the oldest continuously published regional magazine in the United States. Articles in the first volume ranged from the Islands' volcanic beginnings to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the first days of World War II.
In this new volume, Hawaii Chronicles II looks at the people that have made a difference in the Islands since World War II, including artists and writers, politicians, local heroes, and leaders in the Hawaiian sovereignty movement. Through interviews and biographical profiles, this new collection provides a historical context for the events that have shaped Hawaii's recent past.
