In this recently updated edition of A Concise History of the Hawaiian Islands, the reader is invited to experience Hawai`i’s riveting story. Momentous events focused worldwide attention on the 50th state as it celebrated its 50th anniversary of statehood. This new edition attempts to include changes that have occurred since its first publication in 1999. Hawai`i’s colorful history, written in the informal style that students found so appealing in Dr. Barnes’ classes, comes to life through interesting anecdotes and compelling images. The author touches upon major events and personalities that shaped the Hawai`i we know today – from the geologic forces that formed the island chain to the first human landfall; through the transformation of its society by the blending of cultures, into the dawn of the 21st century.
