The long-awaited third edition of the Atlas of Hawai'i, like its predecessor, promises to be "noteworthy for its completeness, meticulous scholarship, and colorful format" (American Reference Books Annual). Entirely revised in content and design, the Atlas presents the Hawaiian Islands in a larger format than before. The volume is divided into six sections, five of which are abundantly illustrated. The first contains detailed reference maps with place names for towns, mountains, bays, harbors, and other features; geographical descriptions of the State and the main islands; and an introduction to Hawaiian place names. This is followed by four sections on the physical, biotic, cultural, and social aspects of the Hawai'i environment. Geology, climate, the ocean, water, soils, and astronomy are among the topics discussed in "The Physical Environment". Next, the special character of terrestrial and marine ecosystems is described. "The Cultural Environment" considers the people of Hawai'i. The diversity of the State's cultures is treated in chapters on history and languages as well as archaeology, religions, and the arts. "The Social Environment" treats such elements as the economy, government, and population. The sixth and final section comprises a statistical supplement, bibliography, and gazetteer for the reference maps. Readers of this new edition will find much new information, including topics (e.g., paleoclimate, threats to native ecosystems, Hawaiian sovereignty) not discussed in previous editions.

How many place names are there in the Hawaiian Islands? Even a rough estimate is impossible. Hawaiians named taro patches, rocks, trees, canoe landings, resting places in the forests, and the tiniest spots where miraculous events are believed to have taken place. And place names are far from static--names are constantly being given to new houses and buildings, streets and towns, and old names are replaced by new ones. It is essential, then, to record the names and the lore associated with them now, while Hawaiians are here to lend us their knowledge. And, whatever the fate of the Hawaiian language, the place names will endure. The first edition of Place Names of Hawaii contained only 1,125 entries. The coverage is expanded in the present edition to include about 4,000 entries, including names in English. Also, approximately 800 more names are included in this volume than appear in the second edition of the Atlas of Hawaii.
