520    "Braided Waters sheds new light on the relationship 
       between environment and society by charting the history of
       Hawaii's Molokai island over a thousand-year period of 
       repeated settlement. From the arrival of the first 
       Polynesians to contact with eighteenth-century European 
       explorers and traders to our present era, this study shows
       how the control of resources--especially water--in a 
       fragile, highly variable environment, has had profound 
       effects on the history of Hawaii. Wade Graham examines the
       ways environmental variation repeatedly shapes human 
       social and economic structures and how, in turn, man-made 
       environmental degradation influences and reshapes 
       societies. A key finding of this study is how deep 
       structures of place interact with distinct cultural 
       patterns across different societies to produce similar 
       social and environmental outcomes, in both the Polynesian 
       and modern eras--a case of historical isomorphism with 
       profound implications for global environmental history"--
