One Voice: My Life, Times and Hopes for Hawaiʻi
Dan Akaka with Jim Borg
Softcover, 640 pp.
For nearly four decades, Dan Akaka’s quiet but powerful voice resonated in the halls of Congress, as “Danny” brought the spirit of aloha to Capitol Hill with lasting contributions in health care, scientific research, veterans affairs, the environment, consumer protection, and the rights of indigenous peoples. In One Voice, Senator Akaka traces this long life of service in his own words, from his childhood in pre-war Hawai‘i to today’s initiatives in environmental awareness and Native Hawaiian affairs. Dan Akaka’s story is a rare book of record—a detailed, dramatic account of the inner workings of government—told with great warmth and candor in the trademark Akaka style.
