How Wall Street Created a Nation by Ovidio Diaz-Espino

Book Description

This book tells a previously untold story of decades of financial speculation, fraud, and international conspiracy that led to the creation of the Panama Canal. The author meticulously details the dark alliance among a French company; Teddy Roosevelt with his gunboat diplomacy; and a secretive syndicate of Wall Street financiers that masterminded a coup in Colombia and the secession of Panama in 1903. Panama then welcomed the canal building, and the U. S. foreign policy precedent was set for the 20th century. How Wall Street Created a Nation includes historical photographs and is a fascinating telling of this scandalous true story.
