Red, White and Blue Paradise: The American Canal in Panama is a history of the Panama Canal Zone by Herbert and Mary Knapp.
It is at once an intellectual history of the Canal Zone and its host Republic, and an account of the authors' own reluctant emergence from a fashionable contempt for the Zonians. The Knapps were two Midwestern intellectuals who went to the Canal Zone in 1964, on the eve of the pivotal Flag Riots, to teach at storied Balboa High School on the Pacific side of the Zone.
