About the Author

Judith Schachter is Professor of Anthropology and History at Carnegie Mellon University. She has been doing fieldwork in Hawai'i for more than two decades. Her publications include Kinship with Strangers: Adoption and Interpretations of Kinship in American Culture (University of California Press, 1994) and A Sealed and Secret Kinship: The Culture of Politics and Practices in American Adoption (Berghahn Books, 2002). Her research includes articles on family and housing policies and, currently, on the movement for indigenous rights in Hawai'i (in Social Identities, 2011).

Reviews

"Anthropologist Judith Schachter has written a valuable book that accomplishes a rare feat: it engages a scholarly audience from a variety of disciplines in a manner accessible to an interested general public as well... Schachter serves as a role model for future researchers since, in keeping with Hawaiian tradition, she learned mainly by listening and watching instead of always asking questions of her 'sources'. Ultimately the years of sharing stories have culminated in a collective mo'olelo that is now a gift to the younger generation upon whom [John and Eleanor] pinned hopes for the future'." * Journal of Pacific History
