Description
This is a well-written, thoughtful and historically sound book. Hard to find and out of print for many years. This copy, while used is in very good condition. It covers a slice of the American experiment in the former Panama Canal Zone. Noble at times and flawed at other times as are all human endeavors the experience served the world well. Human shortcomings should not detract from the bottom line. There were many success stories created by Americans, Panamanians and others as they carved out an engineering masterpiece out of the veritable jungle. Much propaganda has been written about America's intent, mission and accomplishments in buildiing the canal and maintaining it everso effectively for so many years. Much of it is too critical and distorted. All in all, America's accomplishments are a proud and successful chapter in the history of the Americas. Indeed of the world. Some readers will cringe at what I just wrote because so much foolishness and so many falsehoods have been written that it is hard to know the truth. Luckily this book and others will serve as fodder when, in fifty years or such, the definitive books are written. The Canal Zone Museum at the University of Florida is collecting primary material that will help with that task. Meanwhile, this book a good read. (Review is from Amazon)
