by Andrew ParkinThe tiny state of Panama - at the time, part of Colombia - is the focal interest of powerful nations - the USA, France, Great Britain - that wish to exploit its geographical advantage, bridging Atlantic and Pacific. The dictator of Colombia, Rafael Nunez, tries to strengthen his grip over the land. Pedro Prestan is a young black man resistant to these powerful interests. His unique, heroic and tragic stand has been erased or distorted by the victors. His legendary story is told here now with compelling truth and compassion. Pedro Prestan in his lifetime - and after his death - had calumnies heaped upon him. He was a man of integrity who rebelled against the mean deeds of others more powerful and less principled. He deserves a monument to his honour, and this book is it.
