Summary
"Written in 1904 when large-scale canal digging was very musch a part of the political, economic and military strategy of the world's imperial powers. Instead of linking two seas, as existing canals (the Suez and the Panama) did, Verne proposed a canal that would create a sea in the heart of the Sahara Desert. The story raises a host of environmental, cultural and political concerns, The proposed sea threatens the nomadic way of life of those Islamic tribes living on the site, and they decalre war."--Jacket
