Overview

What are the dimensions and patterns emerging in the culture of Hawaii today? Return to Paradise uses a sociological analysis to examine the structural, historical, interpersonal, and contemporary patterns present in the Hawaiian Islands. By focusing on both third and fourth generation Japanese-Americans, Wooden provides insight into the dimensions of "local" culture. Relying on first-hand accounts from college-age youths, Return to Paradise examines the subtle changes that have occurred in Hawaii's young people. Other issues explored include the fluctuating economic and social impact of tourism, and the presence of an emerging "global" identity. Wooden updates and expands the discussion presented in his earlier work, What Price Paradise? Changing Patterns in Hawaii (University Press of America, 1981).
