For my “professional responsibility” class here in Hawai’i during the summer, my class is reading Broken Trust: Greed, Mismanagement, And Political Manipulation at America’s Largest Charitable Trust: the Bishop Estate in Hawai’i. So far, the book—jointly written by our professor, Randall Roth—provides an excellent historical background on Hawai’i, its native peoples, and its politics, something I only had a vague knowledge of before now.

It’s an excellent read, and should provide useful practical background to Professor Roth’s legal ethics class.
