Ironically, around the time that African slaves were emancipated in the US, "blackbirding"--the practice of luring Polynesians and other nonwhites to work for virtually nothing--arose in Australia and the South Seas. Horne (history and African-American studies, U. of Houston) chronicles the participation of US southerners in this practice, the spread of the Ku Klux Klan to the Pacific, the annexation of Hawaii, and racial tensions contributing to the attack on Pearl Harbor. The book includes period illustrations from the Bishop Museum. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
