About the book:

A superb treatment of the evolution of U.S.-Panama relations, Walter LaFeber's The Panama Canal was praised by The Nation as "a balanced, unemotional indictment of the history of the United States in Panama". History hailed it as "the best overall synthesis of a vital theme in American diplomatic history," and The Atlantic Monthly said there was "no better single source."
Now in this new edition, LaFeber brings his study up to date with two new chapters that cover U.S.-Panama relations since 1978, including the attempt to oust Manuel Noriega, and Noriega's role in aiding the Nicaraguan Contras. Essential for anyone who wants a complete picture of the canal debate from Balboa to the present, this new edition of the classic work on the subject is an important contribution to the discussion of the Panama issue today.
