The fourth and final volume of the Hawaiian National Bibliography, 1780-1900 records the most volatile period in Hawaii's history. American business interests and the desire for a constitutional monarchy were pitted against the desire of the monarchs, King Kalakaua and Queen Lili'uokalani to strengthen the power of the throne. The convulsions of the 1887 and 1889 revolutions were succeeded by the overthrow of the monarchy on January 17, 1893.
