About this title

Synopsis:

Discusses foreign policy issues between the United States and Panama, specifically regarding the Canal

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up--A well-written, balanced survey of the often turbulent relationship between the two countries. In the first two chapters, Lindop introduces readers to Panama and describes the early efforts to use the isthmus to improve transportation of goods and people. The author then provides some information about the construction and operation of the canal. The book's focus, however, is on the inherent conflict between the Panamanians' desire for sovereignty over their own land and the U.S.'s need to control an area it considers central to the world economy and its own national security. It is from this perspective that the details of the relationship are related, including wars, rebellions, dictatorships, invasions, and the restoration of democracy after Noriega. Recent improvements in the relations as the U.S. prepares to relinquish ownership and control of the canal in 1999 are included. This is a comprehensive look at this subject. Full-color photos and maps are limited to one per chapter. Edward Dolan's Panama and the United States (Watts, 1990; o.p.) adequately covers much of the same material from a slightly different viewpoint, with more information about the construction and operation of the canal, but it is now dated. Lindop's title is a fine choice for reports.
