Overview

This is a comprehensive examination of the evolution of the politicization of the Panamanian military and the legacy of this transformation in modern Panamanian politics. It addresses the fundamental role that the Panamanian military played in influencing and molding the modern-day Panamanian political system—structurally, legally, and constitutionally—and chronicles the corporate and political growth of the Panamanian military, filtering its analysis through civil-military theory, to achieve its two primary goals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This work is a balanced, historical interpretation of Panama's political system, civil-military relations, and relations with the US government since its independence in 1903. The book is interpretive and analytical because it provides little historical detail beyond what is already known about Panama's domestic politics and US-Panama relations." — The Americas "This book adds important new insight to the literature on Panamanian politics." — The Hispanic American Historical Review

    A great book

    This is simply an outstanding treatment of the Panamanian political system. Harding has joined together relevant history with civil-military theory to explain the genesis of Panama's current politics. His writing style is intelligent but concise. This is one of the best books on Latin American politics I've read in a long time.
