Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Panama is most often associated with its canal. This book takes us beyond the canal. It covers the land and its people up to 1995. The early history of Panama, including the visit of Christopher Columbus in the 1500's, is followed by colonization by the Spaniards. The original inhabitants of Panama were Indians. Then descendants of African slaves from the West Indies were brought to Panama in the 1850's to build a railroad across Panama and later on to construct the canal. Through the years Blacks, Indians, and Whites intermarried, creating a racially diverse country. The most engrossing aspect of the book is its description of the United States' dealings with dictator Manuel Noriega, including the drug trafficking, role of the CIA and aid to the Contras in Nicaragua. This is an excellent book for a social studies program.
School Library Journal
Gr 7 UpA 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.Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
