In 1997, while attending a Manhattan Christmas party, J.P. Morgan lawyer Ovidio Diaz Espino met someone who told him that Panama had been created by a group of Wall Street investors in room 1162 of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. As a native Panamanian, Diaz Espino was so roused by the claim that he immediately went to the library & started digging. This is the account of what he found: an event in world history that brought down a French republic & a Colombian government, created a nation, shook the almost invincible Teddy Roosevelt, & gave birth to American imperialism in Latin America. Diaz Espino pulls together disparate sources to tell a story that should provoke popular discussion & possibly more intensive study of the period & the events. Illus.
