Panama Fever

I’ve just finished Panama Fever by Matthew Parker. It’s a history book about the building of the Panama Canal that reads like an adventure. Wonderfully researched it provides us with an understanding of the problems in Panama-US relations and the racism which dehumanized the West Indian laborers working under both the French and the US canal administrations.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.

Let me know about a good book you've read recently, or about the book that's currently on your bedside table. Why did you pick it up? Are you enjoying it?
