There were two battles for Hawaii?s sovereignty led by Queen Liliuokalani. This book, The Rights of My People, revisits these battles? the 1893 coup d?etat and the annexation in 1898? from a new perspective, against the backdrop of the harsh remnants of the Civil War, the missionary?s disquieting view of race, and the emerging role of Hawaiian women. The Rights of My People explores the fate of the Crown lands, a quarter of the Hawaii islands, taken in the 1893 coup d?etat and contested aggressively by Liliuokalani through 1910. Woven into the story are threats of execution and assassination.
