About the book:

Hogan analyzes the Panama Canal de­bate, one of the most emotionally charged issues to divide American opin­ion in this century.


Hogan first provides background for his detailed analysis of the historic debate between the Carter administration and the New Right. Preparing the reader for that confrontation and the senate debate that followed, he examines the heritage of political controversy surrounding the Panama Canal, particularly the impact of that controversy on the evolution of U.S. policy throughout the 20th century. He documents the canals mythic status in American politics—its transformation from a symbol of Americas rise to world leadership to a symbol, for many, of American colonialism and imperialism.


Hogans analysis covers the substance of the debate over Panama in both the mass media and in the senate. Without becoming an advocate for either side, he analyzes both the protreaty campaign by the Carter administration and the coun­terattack by the New Right.
