ORLANDO J. PÉREZ is Professor of Political Science at Central Michigan University, USA.Review:
"Orlando Pérez is the leading expert on politics in Panama. His new book, based on an extraordinary collection of personal interviews, documents and public opinion data, is the definitive study of post-invasion period, and will become the source of reference for all serious scholars of Central America and small states more generally. Ideal for classroom adoption." - Mitchell A. Seligson, Centennial Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP)
"Orlando Perez has produced an indispensable guide through the labyrinth of Panamanian politics and has raised provocative questions regarding the U.S. role in its difficult transition to a more democratic culture which have implications for current policy." - Dr. Richard L. Millett, Professor Emeritus at Southern Illinois University and Senior Advisor for Latin America to the PRS Group
"Orlando Perez's new book, Political Culture in Panama, is a pathbreaking look at the saga of elite politics and military denouement, often orchestrated from abroad, that until 1989 kept Panama prisoner of its own past and contemporary political and commercial alliances. Although much as been written on the U.S. invasion of that year, statesmen, historians and political scientists as well as ordinary citizens in Panama and abroad needed something to help them understand how Panama has broken the chains of democratic charade, and moved into the ranks of truly functioning elected governments. Perez's work admirably fulfills that need." - Martin Edwin Andersen, author of Peoples of the Earth, Ethnonationalism, Democracy and the Indigenous Challenge in 'Latin' America
"Pérez's study of the crucial Panamanian case provides a refreshing analysis of political culture and development after a foreign intervention. He uncovers how both the 1989 U.S. invasion and the immanent transfer of the canal evolved into a critical juncture that encouraged elites to change their views on democracy, thus installing a strong foundation for democratization. His conclusions are based upon a rich combination of fieldwork, elite interviews, survey data, and skilled historical analysis." - Jennifer S. Holmes, Associate Professor of Political Economy and Political Science, University of Texas at Dallas
"Orlando Pérez makes a major contribution to understanding the post-invasion Panamanian political system. His book melds political history with cultural analysis based on several rounds of unusually rich public opinion surveys collected since 2004. The combination provides valuable new insights into this understudied country, its elite settlement on democracy, and its emergent democratic culture." - John Booth, Regents Professor of Political Science, University of North Texas

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 216 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.Twenty years have passed since the 1989 U. S. invasion that toppled Panamas military regime and initiated a period of democratization. This book represents the most comprehensive and empirically grounded analysis of the institutional and attitudinal factors that have shaped Panamanian politics since the invasion. Using quantitative and qualitative methods the book traces the development of the Panamanian nation-state from its early days after independence from Colombia, to the struggles to build democracy after the U. S. invasion, through the presidential elections of May 2009. The study makes use of extensive interviews with political and economic elites, as well as the most comprehensive series of public opinion surveys ever conducted in Panama. As such, they provide a wealth of data on democratic values and allow placing Panama in a comparative perspective. This item ships from multiple locations.
