Acknowl edgments
I am very grateful for support from the School of Advanced Research in
Santa Fe, New Mexico, and from the Department of Po litical Science at the
University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
I can never repay the generosity of Jonathan Goldberg- Hiller, who read
every page, many multiple times, and cheerfully discussed every idea. Many
ideas and articulations in this book would never have come to be without
his patience and intellect.

to David Chang, Laiana Wong and Kaleomanuʻiwa Wong for helpful
