Book News Annotation:

The arrival of the California Gold Rush had a large impact on the Isthmus of Panama, which was one of the principal conduits for maritime migration to California, long prior to the building of the Panama Canal. McGuinness (history, U. of Wisconsin at Milwaukee) examines this impact in terms of the transformation of Panama's transit system from a locally owned network to a largely US-owned network of ships and locomotives and the issue of Panamanian sovereignty during an era in which Panama experience the abolition of slavery, the establishment of universal manhood suffrage, the foundation of an autonomous Panamanian state, and the first of many US military interventions.
