This volume describes the situation in the Territory of Hawaii in its post-World War II years. It is an account of the roles of the Department of Justice, Congress and Hawaii's Big Five sugar companies in claiming that communists were seeking control of the Hawaiian islands, in response to the post-war growth of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen Unions. H. Brett Melendy has used Department of Justice and FBI documents, as well as researching papers of various congressmen. These sources throw new light on the search for communists in the territory.
