Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Coconut Island in Kane'ohe Bay has undergone many incarnations: private island of Hawaiian chiefs, private resort of the rich and famous, site of a World War II Italian POW camp, backdrop for Hollywood movies, and home of the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology. Cultural anthropologist/historian Klieger (Oakland Museum of California) presents a photo-essay on this evolution culminating in the 1995 reunification of the island's private and public sections. In wide format, the book includes photographs of island sites and personalities, and information on its land title history. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
