Cooper and Daws thoroughly document the shifts in land and power of the last century. For anyone living here (especially on Oahu) wondering how our islands became this way developmentally, this book is a must read. Personally, living in Salt Lake and a good portion of my life in Makakilo, this book gave excellent information as to who the players were (many estates still with tremendous clout to this day) and how they played the game. There's even an interesting chapter on organized crime that names the names of figures who are still kicking. Anyone considering moving to Hawaii will find this a helpful resource to get a feel for much of the politics and how many groups of cultural backgrounds have related to each other. The reader should also gain understanding as to the high cost of living in paradise.

Format: Paperback
The authors do a fine job of the use of political power in post statehood Hawaii. It's interesting how the Democrats took power from the long control by the Republican's of the state's politics. The history of the state is a one of single party control. First the Republican's for decades until statehood then the Democrats replaced them. Both parties have been tied to the business establishment and used it continue their control of power. The Hawaiian environment has suffered because of it. Coming from a state with strong environmental support it was a shock on my first visit to arrive at a wonderful view point above the ocean and look down and see hundreds of empty bottles tossed over the edge

Several people very familiar with business and real estate in Hawaii recommended this book to me. It's a dry read but very informative.

If you're interested in Hawaii politics and how it effected land development during the Democratic Party's raise to power in this state, this book is for you. Very detailed and authoritative.
