Emperors in the Jungle: The Hidden History of the U.S. in Panama

by John Lindsay-Poland
£19.99   paperback  Duke University Press (2003)

Emperors in the Jungle: The Hidden History of the U.S. in Panama by John Lindsay-Poland 'Emperors in the Jungle' is an expose of key episodes in the military involvement of the United States in Panama. Investigative journalism at its best, this book reveals how U.S. ideas about taming tropical jungles and people, combined with commercial and military objectives, shaped more than a century of intervention and environmental engineering in a small, strategically located nation. Whether uncovering the U.S. Army's decades-long program of chemical weapons tests in Panama, or recounting the invasion in December 1989, which was the U.S. military's twentieth intervention in Panama since 1856, 'Emperors in the Jungle' vividly portrays the extent and costs of U.S. involvement.
