[ MAUKA MAKAI ]
The annual historical journal of the society repeats its well-tested scholarly approach to Hawaiian history and has several fascinating articles, including Paul F. Nahoa Lucas' "E Ola Mau Kakou I Ka 'Olelo Makuahine: Hawaiian Language Policy and the Courts," Noenoe K. Silva's "He Kanawai E Ho'opau I Na Hula Kuolo Hawai'i: The Political Economy of Banning the Hula," Hideto Kono and Kazuko Sinoto's "Observations of the First Japanese to Land in Hawai'i," Robert C. Schmitt's "The Cemetery for Foreigners," Mary Ellen Birkett's "Hawai'i in 1819: An Account by Camille de Roquefeuil," Richard MacAllan's "Entrepôt to the World: Richard Charlton's Observations of Trade via Hawai'i, 1828-1841," Robert Louis Semes' "Hawai'i's Holy War: English Bishop Staley, American Congregationalists, and the Hawaiian Monarchs, 1860-1870," Frank J. Karpiel's "A Multinational Fraternity: Freemasonry in Hawai'i," Warren S. Nishimoto's "The Progressive Era and Hawai'i: The Early History of Palama Settlement, 1896-1929," Richard Greer's "Dousing Honolulu's Red Lights" and Ted Chernin's "My Experiences in the Honolulu Chinatown Red-Light District." It's a modest volume, as usual, and not geared for browsers who like big pictures and glossy paper.
