Starting within the period of Manifest Future, U.S. settlers, writers, politicians, and boosters labored to bind California and Hawai‘i collectively within the American creativeness, emphasizing white settlement and capitalist enterprise. In California and Hawai‘i Certain Henry Knight Lozano explores how these settlers and boosters promoted and imagined California and Hawai‘i as related locations and websites for U.S. settler colonialism, and the way this relationship reveals the fraught constructions of an Americanized Pacific West from the 1840s to the Nineteen Fifties.

The rising ties of promotion and growth between the 2 locations additionally fostered the promotion of “perils” over this transpacific relationship, from Native Hawaiians who opposed U.S. settler colonialism to many West Coast People who articulated social and racial risks from nearer bonds with Hawai‘i, illustrating how U.S. promotional expansionism within the Pacific existed alongside defensive peril within the sophisticated visions of Americanization that linked California and Hawai‘i.

California and Hawai‘i Certain demonstrates how the settler colonial discourses of Americanization that related California and Hawai‘i advanced and refracted alongside socioeconomic developments and native resistance, throughout a time when U.S. territorial growth, transoceanic settlement and tourism, and capitalist funding reconstructed each the American West and the japanese Pacific.
