BeschreibungIn the years following World War II, the world's biggest dam was almost built in Hells Canyon on the Snake River in Idaho. This title tells the story of the dam controversy, which became a referendum not only on public-power expansion but also on the environmental implications of the New Deal's natural resources and economic policy.
PortraitKarl Boyd Brooks is associate professor of history and environmental studies at the University of Kansas.
Pressestimmen"Public Power, Private Dams provides a thorough discussion of the controversies surrounding the Hells Canyon High Dam, with a detailed examination of the regional and national forces that struggled over the dam, how their differing visions of the future were embodied in developmental alternatives, and how the region's salmon runs and tribes and fishers were the big losers."
