Panama: Made in the U.S.A
John Weeks and Phil Gunson
How did Manuel Noriega , the CIA's most powerful agent in Central America, become the US administration's most wanted criminal? Why did 22,000 US troops invade Panama, to arrest a man who had been a staunch ally of the US? Was his involvement in the drug trade the real reason for General Noriega's downfall? 'Panama: Made in the U.S.A' explores the unanswered questions behind the invasion of December 1989 and looks at the turbulent history of US-Panamanian relations, in particular the bitter struggle for control of the Panama Canal. It analyses the economic and geo-strategic importance of a country literally created by and for the US government. Looking at Panama since the invasion, the authors explore the challenges facing the US-installed Endara government as it tries to rebuild a country shattered by invasion and the two years of US sactions that preceded it.
