The Maritime Landscape of the Isthmus of Panamá

James Delgado, Frederick Hanselmann, Tomas Mendizabal, and Dominque Rissolo


The Maritime Landscape of the Isthmus of Panamá provides a detailed overview of Panamá’s unique role as a land mass dominated by its relationship to the sea and how that relationship has defined the culture and history of Panamá for thousands of years. Ranging from prehistory to the modern era, with the well-known Panamá Canal as but one element in this story, the book discusses indigenous maritime culture over time, including the modern era, colonial and post-colonial maritime endeavors, the industrial age, and the creation of the canal.

Keywords: Panamá, canal, maritime culture, era, colonial, modern, industrial, prehistory, indigenous
