  1. A

    “The book represents one of the most comprehensive overhauls of professional practice and placing practice going forward on sound, academically valid research. This book combines much of the power of the history enterprise to create a brighter tomorrow. I am truly impressed by how foundationally profound every aspect of the process to produce this book truly was.”

  2. Roger Jellinek

    “Kōkua Aku, Kōkua Mai” represents a breakthrough interpretation of the critical 1820-1840 period when the American Missionaries introduced the concepts of writing and a Hawaiian alphabet, a Hawaiian translation of the Bible, musical melody in the form of Christian hymns, Western medicine, and constitutional monarchy.

    “Kōkua Aku, Kōkua Mai” means “To help one another, to cooperate.”

    Kōkua Aku, Kōkua Mai: Chiefs, Missionaries, and Five Transformations of the Hawaiian Kingdom constitutes a turning point and benchmark in Hawaiian historiography.
