Summary expansion
Although the popular image of Hawai'i is of an idyllic paradise, the islands are, in fact, home to one of the largest military arsenals in the world. Hawai'i is a vital American strategic possession, holding the dubious distinction of being America's most militarized state. Normally, the accoutrements of war would not sit comfortably with the Edenic imagery of Hawai'i's tourist industry. However, militarism has been so ingrained in Hawai'i that, to a large extent, its presence has come to be seen as normal and necessary. Non-natives have written the histories of Hawai'i, built its war monuments, constructed its museum exhibits, and depicted its people in Hollywood films. In these mediums, militarism is often presented as beneficial and natural, and the US military depicted as a welcome, protective force, which provides security and order. However, islanders' views on the subject are more complicated than this. While some are patriotically supportive, and others indifferent, a growing section of the community views US forces with the hostility of people under military rule. In this book, Brian Ireland analyses how and why this situation came to be
