"Sun Yat-sen in Hawaii is the most comprehensive and detailed account available in English of Dr. Sun's life and revolutionary activities in Hawaii. The authors have painstakingly culled information from books and articles in English and Chinese and collected letters, military bonds, and other memorabilia of the revolution and put them in historical context. They visited and identified sites where Dr. Sun's political activities took place and interviewed many family members and descendants of his original group of followers. Short biographical sketches of some sixty Chinese in Hawaii who supported Dr. Sun's cause financially and politically are included."--BOOK JACKET.About the Author:
