Description

Mutual Publishing is re-releasing Rape in Paradise by Theon Wright in a larger format suitable for library collections.

Theon Wright, a Honolulu reporter who covered the murder trial, describes the hurricane-like effect the events of the case had on Hawai‘i. Rape in Paradise is a fast-moving story of an alleged rape attempt that exploded into a ritual murder and race riots in the early 1930’s shaped race and military-civilian relations for decades afterwards and delayed statehood.
