Abstract

Today, the Hawaiian Islands are dominated by tourist and U.S. military activities, and
few tourists or military personnel know about the short but eventful history of Hawaii. It is the intention of this short monograph to provide a concise but helpful history of Hawaii which should stimulate the student to want to dig deeper to appreciate the unique character of the islands. One of the most remote places on earth, the islands became swept up in the stream of world
history in the 19th century and in a space of 100 years went through a series of transformations and upheavals which resulted in Hawaii becoming a U.S. possession- the Territory of Hawaii. The history is filled with tragedy and little joy, but this history is fairly well-hidden by the beneficent nature of the islands today. It is the purpose of the paper to introduce the student to the deeper currents of history which lie behind the place which became America’s final state (1959).
