Professor Brown's current efforts are directed toward completing a political biography of the man who took the Panama Canal. General Omar Torrijos ruled Panama as a moderate dictator and, by mobilizing world opinion against US imperialism, he convinced Jimmy Carter and the US Senate to turn over the canal to the Panamanian government. This general did not have to fire a shot.
Harvard University Press published his most recent book, "Cuba's Revolutionary World" (2017). He teaches Cold War history and Latin American history.
