"By Samuel Manaiakalani Kamakau

Ke Aupuni Mō`ī, or ""The Kingdom,"" gives an account of Hawai`i under the reign of Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III), Kamehameha's second sacred son who ruled during a time of tremendous change in Hawai`i.

This book is the second in a series presenting Kamakau's landmark text on the history of Kamehameha and the kingdom he established. Written in Hawaiian as a serial column over three years, it ran from 1866-1869 in two consecutive Hawaiian newspapers: Kuokoa and Ke Au Okoa. Original publication of the portion of the text included in Ke Aupuni Mō`ī began in February 1868.

Ke Aupuni Mō`ī presents the work of Samuel Manaiakalani Kamakau as he intended it for his own people and peers, in the language and order in which he published it. Glottal stops and macrons are added to the original text, paragraphs are numbered for easy reference, and an extensive index facilitates reference even for those not fluent in the Hawaiian language.

2001. 434 pp., 7"" x 10"". Acid-free text.
