Pineapple Culture is an imaginative reframing of world history with Hawaii and its best known tropical . In his innovative history of the pineapple, Gary Okihiro challenges historians to rethink their allegiance to a linear narrative.

Pineapple Culture is an imaginative reframing of world history with Hawaii and its best known tropical product at its center.

Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 2009. In short, Pineapple Culture, an ambitious work broad in scope, could serve as a useful pedagogical tool in a wide variety of courses. As assigned reading, it would be appropriate for upper-division or graduate seminars in world history, Hawai'i-Pacific Studies, economic history, or American imperialism.

Plucked from tropical America, the pineapple was brought to European tables and hothouses before it was conveyed back to the tropics, where it came to dominate U.S. and world markets. Pineapple Culture is a dazzling history of the world's tropical and temperate zones told through the pineapple's illustrative career. Following Gary Y. Okihiro's enthusiastically received Island World: A History of Hawai`i and the United States, Pineapple Culture continues to upend conventional ideas about history, space, and time with its provocative vision. At the center of the story is the thoroughly modern tale of Dole's "Hawaiian" pineapple, which, from its island periphery, infiltrated the white, middle-class homes of the continental United States. The transit of the pineapple brilliantly illuminates the history and geography of empires―their creations and accumulations; the circuits of knowledge, capital, labor, goods, and the cultures that characterize them; and their assumed power to name, classify, and rule over alien lands, peoples, and resources.
Comments:
Zahisan
This book is VERY wordy... Overly long and convoluted sentences run amuck. In my opinion, Okihiro does not have the best voice for historical narrative...
The narrative itself, however, is well put together and the content of this book is great... Crucial to enhancing your understanding of the Western World's relationship to the tropics.
Enlightening for sure!
