The Ancient Hawaiian State

Origins of a Political Society

Robert J. Hommon

  • Offers a history of the ancient Hawaiians' transformation of their Polynesian chiefdoms into primary state societies

  • Presents a detailed model that will advance the analysis of Polynesian political development and shed light on the nature and dynamics of primary state formation
