  • This is the first book-length look at how and when a wide range of items made their first appearance in the Islands: from cockroaches, slot machines, and drive-ins to aloha shirts, parking meters, and shipwrecks. To satisfy the curious and the skeptical, endnotes and a bibliography listing more than 200 publications are provided, making this work a valuable reference for scholars and an entertaining handbook for trivia buffs.
