Excerpt from The Panama Canal: A Study in International Law and Diplomacy
Although it is not our intention to put forth, and much less to reconcile, the various statements that have been made purporting to contain the famous doctrine of Monroe, as applied to an interoceanic communication, it would seem advisable to begin this study with the assertion of President Monroe in his message of December 2, 182 3. In this way we shall be able to sketch out the position that the United States have occupied and actually hold in the sub ject of isthmian transit across Central America. By inquiring into the policy which the United States have followed in this matter, much light will be thrown on the subject of the position of the Panama Canal before International Law.
