Product Overview

This is the first book to describe an historically unique, spontaneous, leaderless uprising in the Hawaiian islands, in 2001. When an entrepreneur got the idea to start a high-speed, inter-island ferry to connect Honolulu with the neighbor islands, his idea was hijacked by a corporate entity with vast military ties, and became a prototype of Americas sea-based military strategy for the 21st century. The project rode in on a wave of deception and corruptionfrom the governors office, to the Hawaii Superferry corporation, but the Superferry deal was never approved by the people of Hawaii, and this galvanized Hawaiians. On Kauai, citizens took to surfboards and effectively blocked the vessel from entering the harbor, among other emotional protests. This story of personal and political empowerment, an unprecedented showdown against the latest tourist-military intrusion into the Hawaiian way of life, landscape, and local sovereignty, both grim and hopeful.
