Prize possession : the United States and the Panama Canal, 1903-1979 by John Roy Major( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prize Possession is a comprehensive history of U.S. policy toward the Panama Canal between 1903 and 1979. Although the book focuses on the first two generations of tenure of the Canal Zone, between 1904 and 1955, John Major also provides an extensive look at the nineteenth-century background, the making of the 1903 canal treaty with Panama, the move after 1955 toward the new treaty settlement of 1977, and the crucial significance of the Canal to American policy-makers and their public. The main body of the work surveys five key issues raised by American control of the Canal: its defense against naval bombardment, sabotage and air attack, and its role in U.S. war planning; its highly paternalistic administration; the racism of its labor relations; its severe commercial impact on Panama; and the profound influence of the Zone on Panamanian politics and government. The book is based for the most part on the hitherto largely untapped sources of U.S. government agencies, namely, the State, War, and Navy departments and the Canal Zone administration, as well as on the papers of such key figures as Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt and Philippe Bunau-Varilla. It makes an important and original contribution to our knowledge and understanding of a subject that has yet to receive its due from historians

John Major : the autobiography by John Roy Major( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Major's autobiography is one of the most personal and revealing ever written by a former British Prime Minister." "Major's early life was extraordinary; his rise through Parliament meteoric. Soon a favourite of Margaret Thatcher, he became Foreign Secretary and then Chancellor of the Exchequer. When Thatcher fell, he fought and won a shrewd campaign to succeed her." "With the difficulties of the Gulf War and the Maastricht Treaty behind him, and the Poll Tax abolished, John Major went on to win a victory in the general election of 1992. He brought down inflation and ushered in a solid economic recovery. He made the most decisive steps for a generation towards peace in Northern Ireland. Yet within months of the 1992 election his government was in troubled waters. John Major is candid about his fight to keep sterling in the Exchange Rate Mechanism and for the first time makes public his reactions to defeat on 'Black Wednesday'. He is frank about the civil war that emerged within his own party over Britain's relationship with the European Union. He is honest about what he won and what he lost, and about friends and foes within his party as well as outside."--Jacket
