Patrick V. Kirch and Marshall Sahlins, 1992. Anahulu: The Anthropology of History in the Kingdom of Hawaii. Chicago: University of Chicago Press. ISBN 0-226-73364-5.

Reflecting a unique collaboration between a prominent social anthropologist, Marshall Sahlins, and a leading archaeologist of the Pacific, Anahulu seeks out the traces of cultural transformation in the early Hawaiian Kingdom. This pioneering study in the joint application of archaeology and historical ethnography was awarded the 1998 J. I. Staley Prize by the School of American Research, which called Anahulu “a truly unique book of prestigious scholarship written with incredible power and enriched by a critical understanding of history.” “In these volumes, the tragedy that befell the Hawaiian people in the last century is unraveled and laid bare” (The Times Literary Supplement).
