An erudite and witty discussion of the introduction and application of American common law to the Panama Canal Zone. The footnotes march waist-high through the text in the best law review tradition, but the content sparkles with insight. Essential reading for those who wish to understand the roots of current U.S.-Panamanian negotiations.
