Here is a snippet:
"1 March 2012 — Despite the title, this is a history of Hawaii in the run up to the overthrow of the monarchy by U.S. ‘colonizers’ in 1893 through to Hawaii’s annexation by the United States in 1898. Morgan is currently a professor of strategic studies at the Marine Corps War College and previously served with the State Department including time in Tokyo. His revisionist thesis is to claim the annexation was less due to the exigencies of the Spanish American War of 1898—Morgan claims the traditionally accepted motivation—and more to the fears of a Japanese creeping takeover of the islands with Tokyo’s demands for Japanese suffrage."
