Panama Canal by George Kish( visu )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 457 libraries worldwide
Part of Teddy Roosevelt's dream of making America a global power was realized through the construction of the Panama Canal. The French began construction in 1880 but nine years and 20,000 lives later they realized their plans were flawed and abandoned the project. In 1904, construction resumed under American supervision. First, they controlled the diseases that had claimed so many construction workers' lives. Then they developed an innovative design for a series of locks. Their dogged determination paid off when they united the oceans on January 7, 1914. Ninety-five years since its opening, the canal continues to enjoy great success. Even though world shipping--and the size of ships themselves--has changed markedly since the canal was designed, it continues to be a vital link in world trade, carrying more cargo than ever before, with fewer overhead costs
