Ethnicity and Inequality in Hawai'i by Jonathan Y. Okamura

Ethnicity and Inequality in Hawai'i

Part of the Asian American History & Cultu Series


Ethnicity and Inequality in Hawai'i by Jonathan Y. Okamura

Challenges the misconception of Hawai'i as a racial paradise by analyzing how ethnic inequality is maintained among its constituent groups


What is most compelling about Ethnicity and Inequality in Hawai'i is the detail and historiography. Okamura's knowledge of local issues and ethnic identity in Hawai'i is impressive. This book will make a wonderful contribution to conversations about race and ethnicity in American studies, ethnic studies, and perhaps sociology too. -Dana Takagi, Department of Sociology, University of California, Santa Cruz
