Synopsis: «His Hawaiian Excellency: The Overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy and the Annexation of Hawai'i» is an historical novel dealing with the unusual and moving history of Hawai'i. It is based on the life of Colonel Curtis Pi'ehu 'Iaukea, who was one of the Kingdom's premier diplomats. Closely following the unfolding of actual events, the scenes are set in the Islands, in Russia, the Suez Canal, and in England. There arises a colorful history before us filled with tragedy, comedy, love and hate, duty and opportunism, conspiracy and loyalty. Developments in Hawai'i and Russia are compared and questions of a universal nature are raised about men, women, politics, and religion. Given the recent epochal developments in both Eastern Europe and Hawai'i the book does not only address the reader who wishes to learn more about the island state in the middle of the Pacific, but may also contribute to the ongoing debate about the past, present and future of Hawai'i.

About the Author: The Author: Niklaus R. Schweizer was born in Zürich. He studied English and German philology, colonial history, and the history of Great Britain and the United States of America at Zürich University and at the University of California at Davis. Since 1970 he is professor of German at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Honolulu. In 1972 he was appointed Honorary Swiss Consul in Honolulu, and he is an active member of the community there.
