UA Students Study Panama In Series For Tucson Citizen

In 2005, a group of UA students traveled to Panama with staff members of the Tucson Citizen and compiled a series of stories looking at the complicated relationship the U.S. has with the nation created in a U.S-engineered coup.

Their trip was part of the UA's program in international journalism offered by the School of Journalism and the Center for Latin American Studies. Alan Weisman, a professor of journalism and Latin American Studies, accompanied them. He has covered Latin America and the environment extensively, and is the author of five books, including his latest, The World Without Us, which spent most of summer 2007 on The New York Times bestseller list.
