Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-10-A finely crafted series entry. While this book is narrower in scope than the author's other volumes, it truly succeeds in portraying the development of the islands' ``uniquely multicultural society.'' Takaki describes the rise of Hawaii's sugar industry and its need for a constant supply of laborers. The words of the Asian immigrants-their songs, poems, conversations, and diaries-detail living and working conditions on the plantations, relationships with their managers, and efforts to improve their lot, especially by organizing across ethnic barriers. World War II and its effects on Hawaii are discussed. The pleasing open format is accompanied by abundant black-and-white photos.-Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
