 Author Jerry Hopkins - 181 pages - Black-White & Color Photos - Hardcover.
     Hawai'i in the 1970s was a vibrant time; a Hawaiian Renaissance was being led, in part, by the renewed popularity of and interest in hula as an integral part of Hawaiian culture. The Hula was originally written by Jerry Hopkins in 1978, with assistance from Rebecca Kamili'ia Erikson, and it has been a significant narrative on the dance form ever since. Hopkins's book was the first to offer readers a comprehensive history of hula aimed at a general audience.
     Three decades later, The Hula has not been superseded. This reissue of The Hula has been updated and edited by Hawaiian music and hula expert Amy Ku'uleialoha Stillman and enhanced by poignant photographs and graphics, makes an overview of hula once again available to new generations of hula dancers, cultural enthusiasts and fans alike.
     This revised edition incorporates the same graphics as the original, but has been completely redesigned.

Robert Cazimero & Halau Na Kamalei - 7.5"x 10.5" - 124 pages - Black, White & Color Photographs - Hardcover

In 1975, one man brought about a permanent change in the practice of hula. His name is Robert Cazimero and his vision was Halau Na Kamalei, the only male halau hula in the Hawaiian Islands. Today, Robert Cazimero is considered to be one of the most respected kumu hula of Hawaiian dance. The men of Na Kamalei perform around the world, and for 35 years, they have carried on the tradition of male hula. Through the years, Robert Cazimero and Halau Na Kamalei have blazed their journey with Hawaiian pride, dispelling deep-rooted stereotypes of grass skirt girls and coconut bras. The men of hula have swayed the heart of hula by reclaiming the masculine side of the ancient dance.
Many excellent photographs!
