Description

The 1977 Panama Canal Treaty began a process of turning the Canal over to Panama by 1999, setting the stage for the country to finally control all its territory and benefit fully from its geographical location. This book portrays just how Panamanians took advantage of this newfound independence. Panamanians gained a deeper sense of their own nationhood and identity after the transfer of the Canal. Since the year 2000, Panamanians have managed the Canal with great efficiency and turned it into an engine of economic growth and national integration. In the 40 years covered by this book Panama has become a mature and prosperous nation.
