Reclaiming Kalākaua: Nineteenth-Century Perspectives on a Hawaiian Sovereign

Reclaiming Kalākaua: Nineteenth-Century Perspectives on a Hawaiian Sovereign

$28.00

Written by Tiffany Lani Ing

Beginning with an overview of Kalākaua's literary genealogy of misrepresentation, Tiffany Lani Ing surveys the negative, even slanderous, portraits of him that have been inherited from his enemies, who first sought to curtail his authority as mō'ī through such acts as the 1887 Bayonet Constitution and who later tried to justify their parts in overthrowing the Hawaiian kingdom in 1893 and annexing it to the United States in 1898.
