This is a history of the political and economic aspects for the proposed canal across the isthmus in Mexico. This involved grants, contracts and treaties primarily between United States and Mexico during the period 1842-1872. The primary source of investigation is the Foreign Relations Archive of Mexico, where original letters and documents hitherto unused by any historians on this little known subject were researhed. This is the first complete history, taking into consideration both sides of the controversy.
