Summary:
Cutting a path from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Panama Canal set a new course for the development of Central America-but at considerable cost to Panamanians. Sleuth and scholar Marixa Lasso recounts how the canal's American builders displaced 40,000 residents and erased entire towns in the guise of bringing modernity to the tropics.
