Description

This is a comprehensive examination of the evolution of the politicization of the Panamanian military and the legacy of this transformation in modern Panamanian politics. It addresses the fundamental role that the Panamanian military played in influencing and molding the modern-day Panamanian political system--structurally, legally, and constitutionally--and chronicles the corporate and political growth of the Panamanian military, filtering its analysis through civil-military theory, to achieve its two primary goals.

Review quote

"This work is a balanced, historical interpretation of Panama's political system, civil-military relations, and relations with the US government since its independence in 1903. The book is interpretive and analytical because it provides little historical detail beyond what is already known about Panama's domestic politics and US-Panama relations." -- The Americas "This book adds important new insight to the literature on Panamanian politics." -- The Hispanic American Historical Review -This work is a balanced, historical interpretation of Panama's political system, civil-military relations, and relations with the US government since its independence in 1903.
