“This is a balanced study. Conniff is no apologist for U.S. policy, but he understands the contradiction between the American perception of itself as a positive force and the reality of its often negative presence.”
—American Historical Review, on a previous edition
“Contains a cornucopia of information while at the same time providing some interesting detours along the way . . . An engrossing and informative book.”
"[Panama and the United States] is far from a dry chronicle of treaties. Panama is a colorful place, full of outlandish characters, and Conniff's inclusion of social movements, mores, and personal factors behind the scenes make a readable account. Conniff lived and worked in Panama in the mid-1960s and traveled there afterward, cultivating original sources. . . . For the American reader especially, Conniff's account of the end of the alliance offers a good approach to learn about Panama today."
—Joe B. Johnson, American Diplomacy
"[Panama and the United States] is a fine documentary of Panama's history and politics, and is a recommended pick for any college-level political studies holding strong in international U.S. actions or Panama history."
—Midwest Book Review
"[Panama and the United States] is often insightful. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
