Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810878348, Hardcover)

This Historical Dictionary of Panama covers Panama’s unique history from the time of its Spanish colonization, through its connection to Colombia in the nineteenth century, and its long period of U.S. presence. Throughout these periods, Panama drew the outside world’s attention as a transit route that first connected the west coasts of Latin America and the United States to Western Europe. Thus, in the long history of the isthmus, its transit route has served to move cargo, people, and culture throughout the world.

The rich history of Panama is covered through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Panama.
