The events leading up to the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy in 1893, as told by two of the most influential men of the time and place. Dole’s Memoirs were written at the request of Thurston, publisher of The Honolulu Advertiser. Toward the ends of their lives the two men collaborated on Thurston’s Memoirs. Taken together, the three volumes comprise a major source of information about the Hawaiian revolution, by two of the major players. Edited by Andrew Farrell.
