Waikīkī: A History of Forgetting and Remembering presents a compelling cultural and environmental history of the area, exploring its place not only in the popular imagination, but also through the experiences of those who have lived there. Employing a wide range of primary and secondary sources―including historical texts and photographs, government documents, newspaper accounts, posters, advertisements, and personal interviews―an artist and a cultural historian join forces to reveal how rich agricultural sites and sacred places were transformed into one of the world’s most famous vacation destinations.
