This is a comprehensive guide to the diverse religious history of Hawaii. Beginning with the religion of ancient Hawaii, depicting the arrival of the first missionaries, and, religion by religion, covering each faith as it came to Hawaii, the author thoroughly describes the inception and harmonious development of Hawaiian religions. Christianity, Judaism, Japanese and Chinese Buddhism, Shinto, the new religions from Japan (such as Tenrikyo), Baha'ism, and other religions are discussed, their leaders indicated, and their present standing in Hawaii given. Hawaii's Religions fills a gap in the library of Hawaiian literature. As a textbook, as a reference book, or for pleasure reading, it cannot be welcomed by those interested in Hawaiian culture.

Old age is a time of losses- permanent, cumulative and irreversible. These losses include our loss of work in retirement, the eclipse of our past, our biological decline, dependency resulting from such decline, the foreshortening of our future, the abandonment of belief in our own improvement and our society’s progress, and, of course, our death. This book views these losses as part of an elegy of old age. Elegy is a poetic or prose mourning of loss. Sadness and other emotions result. With elegiac understanding we detach ourselves from these losses to seek and find consolation. This book is concerned with achieving intellectual detachment through meditative reflection with the help of reading and appreciating the classics. The final stage of the old age elegy- consolation can be found, at least in part, within the classics-“the garlands of repose”. The classics are broadly defined by Matthew Arnold as: “the best that [has} been thought and said: { or found in the fine arts}. To benefit from the classis requires a life-long liberal education. This education begins with an introduction to the classics in youth, makes use of them during our adult lives, and supplies their conclusion for old age meditation. Such significant works enable us to place the losses we suffer within an intellectual framework of perennial ideas. It is by means of such an intellectual framework that we secure consolation in old age. Classic works familiarize us deeply with the losses and emotions we endure-suggest substitutes for the goods of the life we have lost in old age, offer opportunities of catharsis for the sadness we experience and help us transform ourselves in old age. Classics help us see old age and its losses as part of a complete life which hold a unique value of its own, while remaining part of larger nature processes, history and intellectual traditions.

In this study Dr. Stanford surveys and evaluates the major achievements of Robert Bridges (1844-1930), an important poet, dramatist, scholar, and man of letters whose work has been unjustifiably neglected in recent years. Making use of Bridge's letters, Dr. Stanford has written a volume of criticism that reflects both the poet and the man.
